A loan of $525 helped to buy new clothing, shoes, and cosmetics for her business.

Ivania Del Carmen's story

Ivania C. is 36 years old. She is a merchant, and the mother of two children who are in school. Her husband is an auto painter by trade, in order to help her with the household costs.

She is grateful to Kiva, as with the earlier loan she was able to invest in her business's inventory. Now she needs the loan in order to re-invest, and buy new clothing, shoes and cosmetics. By this means her earnings will grow, and at the same time, the number of her customers.

Ivania has such a passion for the business, that she is taking advantage of the season to sell the items that are sold in bulk at this period.

Her plan for the future is to improve her living conditions, so that she can always be investing in her business. One of her projects for 2012 is to improve her income and help her two small ones who need her so much.
