A loan of $900 helped to buy a sewing machine and materials such as leather, imitation leather and plastics.

Alix Maria's story

Alix is thankful for the previous loan and support she received for her business of making handbags of synthetic materials. With that loan she was able to buy raw materials to make women’s wallets and handbags. Alix says that she has earned more income since her previous Kiva loan because of the working capital it provided for her business. She says that thanks to Kiva, today her business is stronger economically, and that she is happy to be able to count on an ally for her financing.

Alix is now requesting a new loan to buy a sewing machine so that she can do finer finishing along borders and seams, as well as to buy leather, imitation leather and plastics. She will also buy other raw materials to make new products.
