A loan of $1,675 helped to stock her store.


Martha Liliana's story

Martha used her Kiva loan to buy toys and clothing to be able to handle the year end season and she earned money which she used to increase her purchasing power and working capital. She planned the loan for the same month last year and will buy toys and clothing in quantity. She knows her market well and her suppliers wait for her to give her good discounts so that she will earn more money to benefit her family. She sends the following message to the Kiva lenders,” I’m happy for the help you have given me. My business and my entire family have benefitted. Thank you very much will all of my heart.”
