Godelive is 37 years old and she is married. She is a mother who is poor and struggles by selling some goods in her small shop so that she can buy her daily food. She has been in this business for ten years but, unfortunately, she has no savings from her business. The hours of her business are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.
Godelive is now requesting a Kiva loan so that she can expand her shop by adding enough cosmetics goods, foodstuffs like sugar, rice and different types of flour, and some other goods which seem to be in high demand in her business area.
With this loan, Godelive hopes to earn more profits than her simple previous business. If successful, she will start saving as well as improving her family situation.
