A loan of $575 helped to buy fabric and invest in the maintenance of her machinery.


Elena Mercedes's story

Elena bought fabric, t-shirts, and accessories with which she visited a lot of her customers and earned money. She is currently very enthusiastic with this investment, and she is applying for a new Kiva loan.

She will use the new loan to buy fabric and invest in the maintenance of her machinery. The end of the year is a very good season, and she needs to be well-prepared in order to opportunely respond to her clientele as she is accustomed to doing.

She is very grateful for the loans, and she asks the lenders to continue with this work for many more years.
