A loan of $1,650 helped to buy new crafts to add to her native products, such as typical aruako back-packs and accessories.


Olga's story

Thank you for supporting Olga who used her CrediKiva loan to makefor better purchases and to make bags and back-packs that her customers liked very much. She has been working more easily because she had the materials to increase her hammock, bag and back-pag production to supply to her clients.

Olga sends the following message to Kiva lenders; "Thank you, the loan was very helpful to me and I hope to continue receiving your support." Currently, she is requesting a new loan to buy new crafts to add to her native products line, such as the typical arhuaco back-pack (from the indians that live in Sierra Nevada in Santa Marta) and back-pack accessories that are in fashion and sell very quickly. This will make her CrediKiva loan investment successful.
