New Kiva Loans!!!

You all ordered so much during the 25% sale that I was able to lend to TWO entrepreneurs!

Here they are!

Luis Alonso from El Salvador.
 Luis runs a tailoring business from his own home - which I totally related to!  Running a business out of your home is incredibly tricky!  He is 49 and lives with his wife and two children.  He started his tailor shop 25 years ago and would like to invest in materials like fabric, thread, and buttons to make clothing.  Luis' goals for his tailor shop are to improve every day, offer good service, increase the number of customers and increase his family's income. 

Thanks for helping me lend to Luis by purchasing from BLB!

Ochirbat Shagdar from Mongolia.
Look at those awesome shoes he makes!  He currently operates a felt craft business that started in 1996.  He started making shoes and boots, but now designs and produces a variety of felt products.  His business has allowed him to help pay for his son's tuition fees at the university.  Ochirbat will use the loan from your bag purchases to buy more supplies and felt for his crafts business.

How cool are these guys?

Both into the crafting field... I love it!

Better Life Bags has now loaned to 24 people, thanks to all of your support and business!

Giving Kiva loans can be addicting.  Many of my BLB customers have joined with me to make their own Kiva loans.  The cool thing is, they can do that as a part of the Better Life Bags Kiva Team!  Click here to join our team!
