A loan of $650 helped to buy home products, perfumes, beauty products and clothing.


Yuris Mercedes's story

Colony school supplies, ladies' toiletries and undergarments and womens' clothing are the products Yuris bought wither her last Kiva credit, which has increased her prosperity. Now she is applying for a new loan, because her work capital continues to be insufficient to respond to an increase in customers that ask for home products, perfume, beauty products and clothing. With her new Kiva credit, she will supplement her purchase and satisfy her clients, who are more and more loyal and allow her to earn a little more. She says to the Kiva financial backers: "With your help my business and my family have prospered, and I am extremely grateful."
