A loan of $1,650 helped to purchase clothes, accessories and shoes wholesale.


Aura Sofia's story

Aura Sofia invested her last loan in the purchase of children's clothing and accessories, such as dresses, pants, shoes and underwear; she bought everything at wholesale stores in Barranquilla, Monteria, Bosconia, Valledupar and Cartagena on the Colombian Caribbean coast. With that credit, she obtained better liquidity and increased her working capital as well as her sales and earnings. Now, Aura Sofia wants a new Kiva loan, her fourth, to purchase clothing, accessories and shoes wholesale. Taking advantage of the high sales holiday season of the end of the year, she is sure she will be successful with such an investment. This is because she has recurrent clientele and knows that they intend to purchase many things during this period. This, because there is a lot of money circulating among the families and it is also when the sales are at their best. Aura Sofia wants to extend a message to her lenders: “I want to thank Kiva and the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo; I hope to be able to keep enjoying your financial support.”
