A loan of $1,150 helped to buy school clothes and beauty products.


Maribel's story

With her Kiva loan Marible bought beauty products and clothes, which she used to win over new customers. This is why her sales increased, she has more customers, and she has improved her income.

She says to her Kiva lenders, “Thank you for opening the doors for me and giving me a loan. I ask you to continue helping hard-working people so that they will prosper.”

She is currently applying for a new Kiva loan. She will use it to buy school clothes and beauty products, which her customers have ordered. This is what will make her Kiva loan a complete success.
