A loan of $1,150 helped to buy a recovering machine.

Carmen Cecilia's story

Carmen used her previous Kiva loan to buy an industrial filleting machine, fabric, thread, zippers, buttons, etc. Carmen says that the previous loan was a great help so that the clothing would have excellent finishing touches and her customers would be very satisfied. This has opened new markets for her. Since receiving her Kiva loan her sales have increased and her financial situation has improved. Now she wants to improve her productivity so she needs an industrial recovering machine, ideal for making sleeves and pants. Her Kiva loan will be a success because she will be able to increase quality and diversify her products more. Her message to the Kiva lenders is, “I’m grateful to those who lend to us, the small businesses, and I hope you continue doing this wonderful work.”
