A loan of $525 helped to buy merchandise in general, regarding orders that customers have made for children's clothes, jewelry, and herbal medicine.


Ruth Maria's story

Ruth used her last Kiva loan to buy accessories, outerwear and underwear, and jewelry, with which she did very well. She is currently preparing to make another capital investment in her business and so she is applying for new financing from Kiva which she will use to buy merchandise in response to orders her customers have placed for children's clothes, jewelry, and natural medicines. Her message to her funders at Kiva is the following: "I appreciate the funding, I feel great, I am moving forward and I'm going to grow much more next year. I feel very happy with everything."
