Despite the difficulties Rajmonda has been having, she started selling used clothes in an attempt to improve her family's living conditions. “I don’t make much, yet with whatever I make I can feed my children,” Rajmonda said with tears in her eyes.
She is now requesting a loan from Kiva to buy used clothes. She is extremely appreciative of lenders' support and kindness.
