Mrichwa is 63 years old. For more than 10 years, she has been selling fruits and vegetables, which she buys at the market. At 7 am, she takes her children to the bus stop and then goes to sell her products in the businesses of her neighborhood.
She will use the loan to buy a larger amount of fruit and vegetables. She thanks Kiva lenders and Kiva's partner, Yehu Microfinance, for this opportunity.
