A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase an industrial overlock sewing machine, an embroiderer, and raw material and supplies like fabric, thread and adornments.


Zoraida's story

Thank you for supporting Zoraida in her business of making women's clothing, because with her previous Kiva loan, she succeeded in buying an industrial sewing machine and raw material in bulk and in cash; and began improvements on her building and her working capital. Her productivity improved along with the quality of her products, and therefore so did her business's profits and her earnings.

She says to her financial backers: "Thank you very much for this support; my business has grown and so have my profits. I hope to continue receiving it."

Currently, she is again applying for a Kiva loan, with which she will purchase an industrial overlock sewing machine, an embroiderer, and raw material and supplies like fabric, thread and adornments. The success of this loan rests on the fact that with the overlock sewing machine and the embroiderer, the quality of her garments will increase, as they will be more finished. With the raw materials and supplies, her production will increase, and with this alone, she will sell much more.
