Carmen's story

Carmen invested her previous loan in clothing, shoes, and home and personal hygiene products – and she was able to increase her customer base. With this new loan, she will invest in shoes, clothes, catalogue products, and other merchandise. She feels like she will be successful, because her sales are based on customers’ requests, and her customers work and have steady incomes. She is committed to strengthening and continue her business, and her message to Kiva investors is: “Thank you for your support; big corporations are born from small businesses”
