A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase clothing, accessories, school shoes, and carnival items.


Aura Sofia's story

Aura is applying for a new Kiva loan, and it is the third which she has received from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo [Mario Santo Domingo Foundation]. With this new investment she will purchase clothes, accessories, school shoes, and carnival items, which are the main requests her customers have made of her during this season when her sales usually increase. With her other Kiva loans, she was able to increase her number of customers in Bosconia, Cienaga, Monteria, and Cartagena, Colombian cities and towns she travels to so as to make her best sales. She has the following message for her financiers: “I am very grateful to Kiva and the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. I hope to continue prospering with your financial support.”
