Clementina Vasquez has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $300. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of natural materials such as tree bark and cochineal to prepare her own dyes, as well as cotton threads, to increase production in time for the holiday season.
