A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase clothing in wholesale quantities.


Marelis's story

Marelis purchased raw materials such as cloth for school uniforms and various accessories to sell in her business as a merchant, and she managed to sell her entire investment. She is very happy since thanks to the financing from the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo and Kiva she has managed to organize her workshop, have a larger number of machines, and work much more comfortably. Currently, she is preparing to receive a new Kiva loan which she will use to purchase cloth in wholesale quantities and with different specifications so she can have stock and design dresses in accordance with the coming season. She will receive discount prices which she will transmit to her business’ profits, and in this way her Kiva loan will provide her with success.
