A loan of $1,125 helped to buy women's and children's clothing.


Kelly's story

Kelly is 31 years old and makes a living selling women's, men's and children's clothing in her small business, which she set up ten years ago. It is located in the town of Soledad, where she lives with her five-year-old child. She learned how to run a store from a young age, since her father did the same, and it really caught Kelly's attention. For this reason, when she began, she did so carefully and gradually, selling small amounts of merchandize. Today, her sales have increased. She mainly sells on credit, and her working capital is not large enough to meet the demand for her clothes. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Kiva, which she will use to buy women's and children's clothing. She has orders to take on and has not managed to rotate her accounts quickly enough to get paid. Her work experience and ability have guaranteed her success in the investment, especially that of the loan from Kiva.
