Fortunee is 28 years old and is married with one child, who is three years old. No one else works in her family. Fortunee's store is open from 5am until 8pm and she has a clean and well-stocked store selling local traditional beer. She has been in this business for four years.

Fortunee has requested a loan from Kiva lenders in order to grow her business. Fortunee will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to reinvest in her business so that her revenue can keep growing. If successful, Fortunee will continue taking care of her children by providing more food for them as well as building a secure future for them.
