A loan of $1,150 helped buy handbags, hair products, clothes and footwear.

Faride Esther's story

Faride is very pleased with her previous Kiva loan. She was able to use it to buy a display cabinet, cosmetics, accessories and home goods, which she sold on quickly. Her business has improved substantially since she received her Kiva loan and she is now applying for a second one. She will use it to buy handbags, hair products, clothes and footwear – she has a lot of client orders to fulfil. This is her message to Kiva’s lenders: “Thank you for having allowed me to progress with my project, which is so important to me. Thanks to you and to God in particular, I have succeeded in building up my business”.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Eleanor Toal
