A loan of $1,375 helped to buy shoe-making supplies.


Aida's story

Aida used her Kiva loan to buy perfumery, cosmetics and personal use items that she satisfied customer demand with and also earned a bit more money because the prices came with very good discounts. Now she’s got something new in that she’s manufacturing shoes. She conducted a pre-sale and needs to respond to her new clientele. She’s applying for a Kiva loan to buy raw materials and supplies like toecaps, soles, glue, tacks, etc. This new income alternative gives an application of her offer to customers and she will extend towards potential customers with these products. Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: “Thank you for continuing to trust in me, for supporting micro entrepreneurs and their families which allows them to grow.”
