A loan of $575 helped to purchase supplies in bulk and fabric for making uniforms.


Ruby's story

Ruby bought rolls of fabric in bulk, which she used to make student hoodies and sweaters. This was all thanks to her credikiva, which enabled her to increase her clientele, respond to them and generate more profit.

Ruby is currently applying for a new credikiva, which she will invest in the purchase of supplies and fabric for uniforms, because she receives uniform orders for students from institutions for whom she has agreed to make garments. She can offer these at a good price as she now buys in larger volumes, and through this saving she can achieve these prices, making her merchandise more competitive.

Ruby sends the following message to the funders of Kiva - "Your unconditional support is very important, as you are helping to improve the living conditions of many Colombians."
