A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase school supplies and costume jewelry.

Grace Patricia's story

Grace, twenty-nine years old, received a Kiva loan which she used to purchase school supplies, feminine accessories, items to make piñatas, and general paper supplies. Her business was well-supplied; she sold everything and invested again. Her working capital has slowly increased, and today she plans to agree to a new Kiva loan, which she will use to purchase school supplies, costume jewelry merchandise. She will have success because, with God’s help, these are the items her customers will buy, keeping in mind that the coming season is when children prepare to go back to school, and when the carnival festival occurs, when many people want costume jewelry. Her message to the Kiva creditors is the following: “I am very grateful for the support you provide me with these loans, which are a very helpful for me and for everyone in my family.”
