A loan of $850 helped to buy articles of silver and steel.

Tomasa's story

Tomasa bought silver chains, rings, and earrings with her last Kiva loan. Her spirit to continue working is very high. This motivates her because she sees the results and she wants to help her children and grandchildren. The silver jewelry that Tomasa sells is well recognized in her market.

Currently she's applying for a Kiva loan to buy articles of silver. She'll add new products made of steel, which are very much in style.

Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "Thanks for your support." This is because they've given her the convenience of getting capital to expand her business. Her investment will be successful because there's no other competition in the plaza, which helps her a lot to increase her capital and make her payments.
