Virginia Gacheri's story

Virginia is 44 years old, happily married, and blessed with 3 children. Their names are Loreen, Kelvin, and Ryan, and they are 16, 14, and 4 years old respectively. Virginia also supports her sister, who lives with her mother.

Virginia is a shopkeeper who delights in her business very much. She has been running her shop for many years, cheerfully and gladly feeding the community and meeting their daily needs.

Food prices have increased due to inflation, and Virginia wants to buy maize flour and sugar before the prices skyrocket. With a Kiva loan, she will achieve this. This is her second loan cycle, and she pays on time very well. Her dream is to give her children a university education.


This loan is special because:

It gives financial access to low income micro-entrepreneurs.
