A loan of $750 helped to buy yarn, steel accessories, rhinestones, gourds, and seeds in bulk.


Marlon's story

With his previous Kiva loan, Marlon was able to purchase weaving yarn, steel accessories, rhinestones, gourds, and seeds in bulk. He was able to pay cash for these supplies. As a result, his business experienced an increased sales volume.


Now he is applying for a new Kiva loan so that he can buy these same materials. He needs to produce crafts for the Christmas and New Year seasons. Since his sales increase during this time, Marlon needs to have enough available inventory.


His message to the Kiva lenders is as follows: “Thank you for the financial support.” He asks that the support continue so that he can keep improving his profits and his liquidity. As a result, the standard of living for himself and his family will also improve.
