A loan of $1,150 helped to buy a sewing machine.

Vilma Yanet's story

Vilma Yanet owns a micro firm; she works manufacturing uniforms, costumes, etc. and as a secondary activity she owns a variety store (basic staples store). She’s very well-known in the community because of the way she works.

She’s worked with the Fundación for three consecutive years and has shown herself to be a responsible, honest person. On this occasion she mentions that she’s very grateful to Kiva for the support and trust they’ve given her because in addition to the loan she was granted previously she was also able to grow in the variety store (basic staples store) which she was able to stock with the previous loan.

Now that she’s repaid it she once again is asking for a new loan to buy another sewing machine. On this occasion it’s a machine able to do a variety of stitches. She hopes her request will be taken under consideration because Kiva has helped both her sewing and her variety store businesses to improve
