A loan of $550 helped to buy raw materials and sewing materials.

Elvira's story

Elvira tells her Kiva lenders "thank you for providing this help to me and my business." When she previously applied for a Kiva loan, she was able to buy an industrial machine, which has improved her quality and production time. She stopped manually making buttonholes and now uses the machine to make them. Currently, she is applying for another Kiva loan to buy raw materials and supplies because Mother's Day is coming up. This season is largely commercial so Elvira needs to e prepared with products to surprise her customers, and so that mothers of her friends can be dressed elegantly with clothing made in her studio.
