A loan of $925 helped to buy rubber, fique fiber, insoles and packaging material.

Beatriz's story

Thank you for supporting Beatriz who used her previous Kiva loan to buy materials such as rubber, fique fiber, insoles and packaging material wholesale and for cash. She used these materials to make footwear which she later sold. Her Kiva loan allowed her to increase her working capital, increase her sales and make more profit from her business. Motivated by this experience, she is now applying for a new loan through Kiva. She will use the new loan to buy larger quantities of rubber, fique fiber, insoles and packaging materials which she will use to make more footwear to sell for Mothers Day. This is a time of year when women and mothers get together, receive gifts and dress up to celebrate the loving and worthy work they do, together with their families. Beatriz will have the best designs available for her customers so that they can all enjoy the footwear that they have ordered from her and have a wonderful time together with their loved ones. Beatriz, meanwhile, will make income which will benefit her household.
