A loan of $850 helped to buy a new vacuum cleaner.


Gisela Maria's story

Gisela applied for a Kiva loan and used it to buy large quantities of shampoo at a discounted rate for her furniture cleaning business. It also helped her finance the jobs that she does on credit. Her sales have increased and, as a consequence, her earnings. Her business is starting to gain recognition thanks to Kiva. For this reason, she would like to say to her funders, "I encourage you to continue this noble effort not only in Colombia, but in all Latin American countries."

Today she is applying for a Kiva loan so that she will be able to buy a new vacuum cleaner to give simultaneity to her service, which will help her, little by little, achieve her dream of prosperity with respect to growing her business.
