A loan of $1,150 helped to buy fabric remnants, thread, and buttons.


Isabel's story

Thanks to her previous Kiva loan, Isabel increased her sales of products she made in her shop. She doubled her buying capacity and was able to make many more products. Now she has a bigger inventory with a lot of orders especially for the Christmas and end-of-year season that comes with new dreams and a lot of parties, for which her customers need to be very elegant to enjoy with their families and wait for 2013.

This is why she's requesting another Kiva loan to buy fabric remnants, thread, and buttons. This will enable her to fulfill her current orders because it will increase her buying capacity.

She sends the following message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you, and may you continue supporting small businesses, which in the future will be the big companies of Colombia."
