Giseth Margarita's story

Giseth is 48 years old and makes footwear using materials such as leather. She applies pretty accessories for a higher quality. She was been a cobbler for 16 years, when she decided to make her expertise in the manufacture of footwear and handbags available to her customers. Since then she has not stopped, and continues to increase the quality of her products and number of customers. In her store, she employs sales assistants who offer samples of her products to the market. She buys and sells in cash and her main customers are sellers who order products (bags and shoes). She trys to respond to demand in a timely manner, in order to continue growing, which is her goal.

This is precisely why she has turned to credikiva. This is her first loan through the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation, through which she will buy leather, accessories, linings and synthetic fabrics, to design new products, such as handbags and footwear, to have an increasing impact on her market, and to make her credikiva loan a successful investment.
