A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more vegetable for her retail business.


Bibimo's story

Bibimo is 55 years old and is married. She and her husband have raised three children. For more than 15 years, Bibimo has been selling vegetables, such as cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers, and garlic. Her daughter-in-law helps Bibimo with the business. Bibimo begins her work day early in the morning, buying vegetables wholesale from the local farmers, and then selling them in the market. In the market, she is known among people because of her attractive prices and friendly personality. This allows Bibimo’s business to generate a stable and considerable income for her family.

Now it is the season and her goods are in great demand. For this reason, she is planning to purchase new fresh vegetables to sell. For this purpose, she requests 10,000 Somoni.

She is a repeat client and has a positive credit history. It is her second loan with Kiva’s field partner IMON.


This loan is special because:

It supports the well being of women and their families.
