A loan of $850 helped to buy fabric in larger amounts.


Mercedes's story

Mercedes used her previous Kiva loan to buy fabric and various accessories to make clothing and costumes, especially for children; she did very well with them. Now, she’s preparing for a new season and she needs to both pay labor costs and to buy fabric because she has pending orders she must respond to in order to continue generating income sufficient for her and her family’s wellbeing. Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: “I am very grateful for the support received and I pray to God that He’ll shower blessings on you and your families.”
