Marquesa's story

Thank you for supporting Marquesa in her retail trade, because with her previous Kiva loan she was able to buy bracelets, earrings, children’s clothing, underwear, nail polish, lipsticks, and many items that her customers wanted. She was able to get a good discount with the bulk purchase. Her business grew, and now she works on it from a shop located very near her home. Currently, she is applying for new funding to buy hardware supplies, tools, light bulbs, electric cables, bathroom and kitchen accessories, nuts and bolts, and stationery. With everything that is happening to her business, Marquesa says to her Kiva lenders: “Thanks to them we take advantage of every opportunity. May they keep on reaping.”
