Zilpa is 33 years old and lives with her life companion and her five children, all of whom are attending school.
For the last two years, she has been selling rice in a store in her home. She started off small and then started to grow, thanks to the recommendations of her customers to other people. In this way she grew a little at a time. She considers herself to be a good entrepreneur.
She is asking for a loan to buy sacks of rice to sell. She is thankful to Kiva and Yehu for the opportunity given to her as obtaining the loan will be a great help to her.
