One of my goals in opening the boutique was to support moms in business by helping to promote and sell their amazing mom-invented products. I also wanted to make sure that I was *giving back* at each step of the way while growing the business and a KIVA loan to a fellow mother and entrepreneur felt like the perfect match this year!
This month, after reviewing our sales for the year, we were able to provide KIVA loans to 2 mom entrepreneurs! So, customers and friends, here are the women (and their businesses) that you helped us contribute to this year:
Along with 34 other lenders, Ana's loan request in Ecuador has been 100% funded!
This loan will be used for the purpose of:
to purchase perfumes, lotions, jewelry and clothing for her retail business.
Along with 7 other lenders, Esther's loan request in Uganda has been 100% funded!
This loan will be used for the purpose of: To buy more raw materials for making sponges for her business.
So I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all of your business and support this past year. I feel blessed to have met so many amazing moms & dads through the boutique...whether they were the inventors behind each product or the hundreds of moms that visit the site daily to shop mom-invented products.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I can't wait to see what is in store for 2012!
