A loan of $1,125 helped to buy cosmetics and a variety of general store products.


Alba Lucia's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Alba bought school supplies, stationery supplies, cosmetics, and home goods wholesale and for cash to supply her general store. Today, she has greater liquidity and this is thanks to her Kiva loan, with which she increased her sales and her profits. Her investment will be successful because she has loyal customers. She offers her customers fair prices and she attends to them in a friendly manner. Currently, she is applying for another loan, with which she will buy cosmetics and a variety of general store products, in cash and in bulk. She expresses "a very grateful message to Kiva and to FMSD and asks that they continue financing, to continue increasing her quality of life and that of her family."
