A loan of $550 helped to buy merchandise that she will resell.


Margarita Maria's story

Margarita used her last Kiva loan to buy cosmetics, school supplies and a large display case. The investment paid off and she's now applying for a new loan that she will use to buy merchandise--novelties, purses and other discounted products--that she will resell. She expects to make a good profit from the investment because she can get discounts for the merchandise by paying cash and she already has orders for her products from some of her customers. "I'm grateful for your confidence in my business", she told the loan officer who visited her, "and it's growing by the day".
