A loan of $1,225 helped to purchase raw materials and supplies such as imitation leather, synthetic materials and accessories.

Alex Jesus's story

With his previous Kiva loan Alex purchased a sewing machine. He used it to make higher quality purses, because his sales increased due to the fact that he had a greater capacity to produce and meet the demand. Alex is currently very glad because his sales have resulted in better profits and his financial situation is continuously improving. He's currently preparing for the Christmas and New Year season with new designs. In order to purchase raw materials and supplies, he needs more working capital; this is the reason why he requests a Kiva loan once more. He'll use it to stock up his business with imitation leather, synthetic materials and accessories, and he'll meet his customers' orders who wish to give the year 2012 a proper sendoff. His message to Kiva lenders is the following: "The work you're doing is very good and I hope that you'll keep it up, so that we small business owners can continue to benefit from that".
