Norelis's story

Norelis is a 30 year old seamstress who has a 1 year old son. She dreams of a successful future for him and he is the motor of her life. Norelis makes informal, multi-use clothing, underwear and general children's clothing. She started this business 7 years ago and with her hard work she had made it grow. Now she makes clothes for distributors whom she sells to by the dozen and mainly up front. Norelis is dedicated to making her business grow but her biggest challenge is the working capital she has to respond to her expanding needs. That is why she has turned to her Kiva loan, the first loan she has taken out with the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. With it, she will buy fabric, thread, elastic and accessories to make modern designs. Her investment will be successful because it is based on her experience and with new working capital that she didn't have.
