A loan of $500 helped to have working capital for adding new clothes to grow her business.


Benardette Nthenya's story

Benardette is a married lady blessed with two children. She sells new and used clothes for a living, and she likes her business very much. Interacting with her clients is her hobby as she gets to know their needs better in order to give them better services. Her clothes are affordable and elegant and they attract many customers to her.

She wants to expand her business to give quality services, but she is limited with working capital. With a Kiva loan, she will buy more new clothes to sell.

This is her third loan cycle and she is known to pay well and on time. Her dream is to have a wholesale clothes shop.


This loan is special because:

It gives financial access to low income micro-entrepreneurs.
