A loan of $650 helped to buy thread and office supplies.


Josefa Maria's story

Josefa used her previous Kiva loan to buy yarn, elastic, stamps, lace, two stamping machines, ribbon, clasps and collars. She managed to manufacture many uniforms and she’s very satisfied with her sales. She’s currently planning on a new Kiva loan to buy shoe making thread, embroidery and knitting thread and stationery supplies which are products in high demand and that turn over quickly. Her message for the organizations that support her is the following: “I feel very proud to be a client of Fundación Mario Santo Domingo because they gave me the opportunity to finance my loan through Kiva. I feel very well taken care of. Thanks to you my business is better stocked.”
