A loan of $1,125 helped to stock her retail business.

Lucia Pabla's story

Lucia has used past Kiva loans to stock her retail business with discounted products that she bought from catalogs and sold to her customers, both those who had already ordered from her and those who she subsequently found and added to her list of customers. She says that the business has been a success and that she is applying for a new loan that she will use to expand it. The investment will allow her to fill orders that she has already received, orders for merchandise such as women's and children's shoes. She asked us to pass along a message to Kiva lenders: "I am grateful to have found an organiation that helps small businesses like mine get ahead, not only with financial help, but with training too".
