A loan of $825 helped to buy cooking utensils and a stove, and to buy raw materials and supplies.

Cecilia's story

Cecilia received a Kiva loan, and with it she bought raw materials and supplies at wholesale, where she got a good discount. She also fixed the roof, which was in bad condition and was not allowing her to work effectively. Now she plans to apply for a new Kiva loan to buy cooking utensils and a stove, as the one she has is deteriorated. She will also invest in raw materials and supplies to increase her production. This way she can work in more comfortable conditions, and obtain discounts for buying bulk and buying in cash. With this cost saving, she will be able to increase her profits.
