Madam Mavis A. sells soap. She markets her goods by moving from home to home. She lacks capital to increase or expand and is more often than not idled when her goods get finished in good time. This poses a problem to her since she loves to be working all the time. Madam Mavis believes that when she gains more capital to work with, her soap business will grow and improve her living condition. She is therefore seeking a loan of $700.00 from kiva.
