A loan of $850 helped to buy towels, underclothes, bed linens, and footwear.


Marina Esther's story

Marina, who is 56 years old, invested her Kiva loan in the purchase of supplies and clothes, footwear, salsas, and pickles, with which she made new profits. Currently she is applying for a Kiva loan in order to invest in the requests that her customers have made, and as she is always responsible, she wants to be timely with them. With her new Kiva loan she will buy towels, underclothes, bed linens, and footwear. The success of her loan lies in her increasing her work capital, the number of customers, and in the quick rotation of her merchandise. She is very satisfied with her investment and today sends the following message to the Kiva lenders: "Many thanks for the financial support to Colombian microenterprises and keep multiplying this excellent work in all the countries of the world."
