A loan of $425 helped buy clothes to sell.


Jeerling Raquel's story

Jeerling lives in the municipality of Tucuantepe with her husband and son. She is a merchant who sells second-hand clothing and her husband, who also works, helps her with household expenses. Jeerling's biggest dream is to finish constructing her house and to buy the materials that she needs to do so. With this new loan, her clothing business will expand a little, since customer demand is very good and she wants to take advantage of vacation time to boost her sales. Thus, Jeerling will obtain better income and be able to invest more in her house. Jeerling is grateful to Afodenic and Kiva for the help they have offered.
