A loan of $1,125 helped to buy decorative stones and leather.

Edgardo's story

Edgardo used his previous Kiva loan to buy raw materials and supplies such as leather, shoe uppers and decorative materials with which he made new footwear designs that he duly sold. He is currently applying for a new Kiva loan as he has found the best suppliers of decorative stones and leather in Bucaramanga, a city known for the quality of its footwear and leather products, but needs more working capital in order to be able to buy all the supplies and materials that he needs to further improve the quality of his goods. This is why he is applying for a Kiva loan. His investment will be successful as he will be able to use it to boost sales to a wider market. He plans to increase his sales, especially during the second half of the year which is usually his peak sales period.
