A loan of $600 helped to purchase materials and supplies to make bags, and an industrial sewing machine.

Jaime's story

Jaime purchased materials for his production. He found good prices on imitation leather, zippers, and thread, and with these he made very attractive bags and briefcases at competitive prices. This has been what made an impact on his customers, and it happened thanks to his Kiva loan.

Currently he is applying for a second loan, with which he will once more purchase materials and an industrial sewing machine to improve his production times and give his products a better finish. His message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "Thank you to all of you for this great support. A thousand blessings and continue supporting the productiveness of Columbia".
