A loan of $625 helped to buy plastic tanks to sell.


Alba's story

Alba is applying for a new Kiva loan because she needs to buy plastic tanks to sell and increase her working capital as she has been doing. With her previous Kiva loan, she was able to buy plastic drums. She sold them in the cities of Montería, Sincelejo, and Magangúe, also located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. She did very well with them because she quickly turned over her capital and achieved a slight increase in her sales. In her message to the lenders she says the following: "Very grateful to these people who have helped us to move forward in our businesses, and may they continue with this beautiful work."
