A loan of $1,400 helped to buy fabric and thread in bulk, and also to make some improvements to her workshop.

Rosa Victoria's story

Rosa is very pleased with her dressmaking business, because thanks to her Kiva loan, she was able to invest working capital in the business, enabling her to purchase raw materials and supplies and do preventative maintenance work on her machines. She managed to complete the production of garments to fill an important order and improve her production times, thanks to the Kiva loan that allowed her to improve the technical infrastructure of her business. Her standard of living has increased as a result of her work, and now her purchasing power is growing by the day.

The festivities that take place in the month of December are approaching; this is a time when all of the families want to look very elegant as they await Christmas and the New Year. Her orders now exceed her purchasing capacity, and so for this reason she is seeking a Kiva loan once again. With this loan, she will buy fabric and thread in bulk, and she also plans to make some improvements to her workshop.

Rosa sends the following message: "I give thanks to God for Kiva, and the opportunity that they have provided me to belong to the great small-business family of the Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, and for the support that I have always received when I have needed it."
