A loan of $200 helped to buy cloth, thread, linings and zippers to continue with her business making clothes and general clothing repairs.

Elvira's story

Elvira has a dressmaking workshop where she makes dresses and general clothing repairs. The loan she needs is to purchase basic materials such as cloth, thread, linings, zippers and buttons, etc.

Elvira is single and has three children. She lives in a house located in the Miraflores zone of La Paz as a caretaker. Elvira is very happy with the loans made to her previously. She has had five loans and has paid all of them in full. They helped her to obtain a greater income and take care of her family. This is the third time that she has asked for her loan to be sent to Kiva.
