A loan of $500 helped to buy blankets, quilts, and sportswear to sell.


Dayana's story

Dayana is a merchant and lives at her parents’ house, which is made of brick and has cement floors. The house is located in the District of Villa Nuevo Potosi in the city of La Paz. Dayana works more than eight hours day since that is the only way for her to support herself and her child.


She is requesting a loan to increase her capital. Dayana sells blankets, quilts, and sportswear as a street vendor since she has no established retail location. She wants to buy more of these items so that she can continue her revenue flow and even improve it.


Dayana’s dream is to finish her higher education. This is the second time she has requested a loan through Kiva.
