A loan of $625 helped to purchase children's clothes, Christmas ornaments, and new phone minutes plans.

Nelly Del Carmen's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Nelly purchased a greater quantity of merchandise such as clothing, ornaments, and even phone minute reloading plans to expand her telecommunications services offerings. Currently, she is planning to invest it in her business at Christmastime and New Year's, since she knows that at this time investment is usually very effective. This is why she is taking out a new Kiva loan, with which she will purchase children's and women's clothing, Christmas ornaments, and new minutes plans, so that her customers will have the opportunity to be closer to their families and will be able to wish them a "happy and prosperous 2012" through the telecommunications services Nelly offers. She asks that Kiva lenders "continue helping to continue advancing".
