A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase shirts for re-sale.

Santa's story

Santa is 65 years old. She has two children and one of them lives with her. She is unmarried and lives in her own home. She is a merchant and is in the business of selling artisanal crafts. Santa spent several years working in Argentina, away from her children. After several years, when her children had grown, she returned to her country and began selling artisanal shirts, ties, and tablecloths in her area. Now, she makes sales with her son, to whom she is teaching the art of sales as they are done in the capital.

She needs the loan to purchase shirts with which she can stock up and meet customer demand. She is grateful to the foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity she is receiving.
