A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase fabric, thread and sewing materials.

Maria Esperanza's story

With her previous loan Maria bought thread, buttons, fabric, collars, cuffs, clasps and plush. She met her orders in a timely fashion and that was because of Kiva. Maria gives thanks to her lenders, because with their support they're helping several families to build a better future. She's currently requesting a new loan which she'll use to purchase supplies for making plush dolls that her customers have ordered as an addition to their daughters' Christmas gifts. She'll also purchase a filleting machine so she can improve production time and perfect the quality of her products. That way she'll increase her working capital and obtain better profits during this holiday season, so that she can celebrate the approaching Christmas festivities with many presents for her family.
