A loan of $575 helped to buy stationery and cosmetics.

Mariela's story

Thanks to the support for her business of selling various merchandise, Mariela used her previous Kiva loan to buy a large volume of stationery, women’s clothes, and cosmetics to sell to her customers. With this investment, she was able to improve the image of her business and increase her profits.

She is currently applying for a new loan so that she can buy stationery and cosmetics in large volumes since these items have been requested by her customers. Mariela is grateful to the Kiva lenders and hopes that they will continue supporting people like her so that they can continue to strengthen their businesses.
