A loan of $1,125 helped to buy bolts of cloth.

Xiomara Elena's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Xiomara purchased primary materials like cloth, sliding thread, buttons, and, in general, everything she needed to fill her customers' orders. In that way she generated a little more profit, so she invested that and increased her profits.

Now she plans to continue growing. To do that she is getting another Kiva loan with which she will again purchase a greater volume of bolts of cloth in order to get a discount for buying wholesale and in cash. She will take advantage of the fact that she has a stable customer base which is very punctual in paying her, and she is very satisfied with this.

Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "Thank you. Keep supporting the dreams and goals of micro entrepreneurs."
