This is Rukia. Thanks to her desire to improve and get ahead, Rukia has had a business selling basic grains (rice and beans), sugar, ground nuts, cereals, soap and detergent for years in her community. Her work routine spans approximately 10 hours a day.
The objective of the loan is to increase her working capital and stock for her business by purchasing basic gains so that, in the not too distant future, she will be able to earn a better income. Rukia is grateful for the help that Kiva investors provide to people with scarce resources so that they will have a way to obtain decent work.
