Aurora Esther's story

Aurora is 62 years old. She is a widow who lives in the municipality of Soledad, a settlement very close to the city of Barranquilla. There she has a sewing workshop where she repairs all kinds of garments, and she also creates clothing for women. She sells for cash and for credit to a customer base she built up before she was totally independent, when she was a worker with a large clothing manufacturer in the city of Barranquilla. Her business goal is to expand her clientele and grow in the market, but her income is not sufficient to invest in her business in order to reach new buyers with diversified products. This is the reason that she is taking out a Kiva loan, her first financing with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation. She will use it to buy materials and supplies such as clothing, thread and accessories, with which she will provide beautiful finishing touches to all of the garments, as requested by her best customers.
