Ocuituco Group's story

Ana Lilia, aged 21, is married and the mother of two young boys. She sells footwear via catalog. She applies for this loan to expand her inventory of shoes and sneakers for women, men and children. She launched her business four months ago with a Kiva loan. Her business is important for her, because she can contribute to family expenses and she likes going out and offering her products to her neighbors in the community. She offers the shoes with payment facilities. She likes socializing and is proud to sell shoes because she can have an income and care for her children. She uses her profit to invest in new footwear and provide for the needs of her children. She dreams and hopes that people continue to buy her merchandise, that she get more customers, that her children be well nourished and grow up healthy, and that she be able to cover school fees when her children start studying.

Ana Lilia is happy with the loan that she is about to receive. She will use it to expand her business and buy shoes to fulfill her orders. She wants to tell Kiva and the microfinance institution Fundación Realidad: "we are grateful for your loans; thanks to you we can start a business and you give us new opportunities for success."
