New Kiva Loans and Finished Bags!!!

 This week has been ALL ABOUT THE Frietas Ruffle Clutch.
And I still have about EIGHT more to make before tomorrow!

Good thing these are my favorite bags to make.
I just love the ruffles all lined up in a row.

Can you find your order?

I've sold 29 bags since November 1st.
You guys are awesome!

This, of course, means that enough money has come in for us to to loan to ANOTHER low income entreprenuer from Uganda.
(The importance of choosing Uganda will come up in an important post next week, so stay tuned)

Meet Clovis

Clovis is 53, married, and hard working.
He has five other family members that live with him in Uganda and he desires to give them the best standard of living he can.
His occupation is a tea farmer and has been in the business for five years.
While his business is growing, he will use the money loaned to him to purchase fertilizers for his tea plantation.

mmmmm... makes me want to go heat up some tea myself.

 Thanks for helping me give to these precious people.
Keep buying bags, so I can keep giving loans!


  1. I'm so glad your business is thriving! You make super cute bags so it's no surprise. You should use that one pic of all the bags (the last bag picture) for a button or ad. I think all the colors and ruffles are eye-catching. Also, have you heard of Gussy Sews? She makes bags too, you should check her out if you haven't already. She's got some great selling tips.

  2. I will google her right now! Thanks for the tip about the ad - good idea :)
