Tima is married and has children who attend school. She sells paraffin – a business she runs from her home. She has two years of experience running this business. She created this business due to a lack of sources of stable work and in order to generate income and help pay for the household expenses.

Currently, Tima needs to amass some working capital to buy 20 litres of paraffin from the distributors to offer her clients and improve her income. Tima is grateful for the help Kiva investors give those with limited resources in order to have sources of dignified work.
