A loan of $850 helped to buy raw materials to make new shoe designs for the holiday season.


Edgardo's story

Edgardo used his previous CrediKiva loan to buy an industrial machine and raw materials, such as leathers, synthetics, rubber, soles, buckles and accessories to make shoes. He is now applying for a new loan to buy raw materials to make new shoe designs for the holiday season. It is a time of much celebration and shopping when Edgardo usually enjoys his best sales period of the year.

Edgardo's message to Kiva lenders: "I am grateful for all the help and hope this program extends throughout the country and the continent."
