A loan of $850 helped to buy thread.

Francia's story

Francia used her previous Kiva loan to buy supplies and materials she used to manufacture purses, hammocks and still had enough money to buy a display case. She’s currently applying for a new Kiva loan she’ll use to buy thread to make new hammocks and purses taking advantage of the soon to arrive vacation season when customers on their way to Cartagena buy traditional San Jacinto crafts from her, products from the hands of women who preserve their traditions.

Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: “I am very grateful for the loans and I hope you will continue supporting me so that I can reach my dream of having a well-stocked crafts store and to sell much more.”
