A loan of $650 helped to buy items for the kitchen and more chairs.

Yesenia Del Carmen's story

Yesenia bought chairs to replace the old ones that were deteriorated. She also bought more basic materials, which allowed her to increase production. Her sales increased because she had more customers and this is thanks to her Kiva loan. Yesenia is now applying for another Kiva loan that she will use to buy items for the kitchen and more chairs so that her customers do not have to wait for others to finish. Her business is very presentable and her life changed. The loan generated more income which she has used to buy household items and everybody now feels happy. "I thank those who helped me and who continue with this wonderful work to make our businesses bigger and more prosperous."
