A loan of $450 helped to buy summer clothes.

Bertha Adilia's story

Doña Bertha, a woman of strong prinicples, thanks God for her two jobs. Her primary job is as a cleaning lady in a distribution center. Her other source of income is her business selling clothes, shoes and cosmetics. She has been able to expand this business thanks to financing from Kiva and Afodenic. Her husband works as a mason but unfortunately he works on contract and during certain seasons the economic burden falls on her and she is responsible for providing for their family.

That is why she would use this loan to buy summer clothing (shorts, sandals, towels, bathing suits, etc) and to offer her customers a variety of products. She would also like to provide a better quality of life for her children.
