A loan of $625 helped to buy more thread, lace, and buttons.


Leticia Del Carmen's story

Leticia from Malambo addresses the following message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you for helping me achieve my dream of making my business grow." She is thankful for how well it is faring and wishes to continue on this course. With her previous loan, she bought cloth, lace, zips, and other supplies with which to make clothes and jewellery. She was thus able to fulfil her customers' orders for school uniforms as well as to offer a greater variety of items for sale. With this new Kiva loan, she plans to buy more thread, lace, and buttons. Her investment will pay off because her shop is very well located, in the very centre of Malambo, which is the commercial area of the town. She has many customers, both educational institutions and individual customers.
