A loan of $550 helped to buy different colored threads for making bags in larger quantities.


Nellys Yolanda's story

Nellys bought a sewing machine with her previous Kiva loan and this allowed her to fulfill her dream of making progress in her business. She is very grateful for the loans she has received and she hopes to continue working with these resources.

Nellys is currently applying for a new Kiva loan which she will use to buy materials for making her own hand-made creations. The end-of-year holiday period brings her a lot of customers and this is just what she needs to grow her business. Thanks to her Kiva loan, Nellys will be able to buy in larger quantities and thereby meet her end-of-year demand. She is applying for a new loan so that she will have a lot of threads in different colors available for making more bags which she has orders for. This will guarantee the success of her Kiva loan.
