A loan of $1,825 helped to buy shoes, perfumery and cosmetics.


Vilma's story

Thank you for supporting Vilma who used her Kiva loan to increase her working capital. She was able to have funds sufficient to fill her customer orders. The number of her customers increased as well as her sales and profits which gave Vilma much satisfaction because her family income is improving. She says to her lenders: “I’m very grateful for the economic support received; I hope to continue receiving it.”

She’s currently applying for a new Kiva loan to buy shoes, perfumery and cosmetics because the second semester of the year has arrived and sales usually increase at this time. Because her clientele is regular, they start placing orders and recommending new buyers to her and this is precisely the success of her Kiva loan.
