A loan of $650 helped to invest 40% in construction materials to build walls for her business and 60% in buying goods such as provisions, fabric, materials to make clothing and items such as underwear and sweaters.


Simona Del Camen's story

A previous Kiva loan helped Simona to buy food supplies, fabric, materials to make clothing and goods such as underwear and sweaters. This strengthened her two businesses as she managed to increase her business usefulness and was able to invest more. Her sales increased, she improved her ability to pay back her loan and now she feels more relaxed as she has also managed to improve her house.

Simona is now asking for a new Kiva loan. She will use 40% of it in buying construction materials to erect walls for her business and 60% in buying goods such as food provisions, fabric, materials to make clothing and items such as underwear and sweaters so that she can sell much more. She is grateful to lenders, saying "God bless you for the work you are doing."
