She has two tables and chairs she sets up in front of her home to serve her customers. Her daughter helps her with her work. She also sells cold soft drinks and candy inside her home, where she has a display case where she can keep the drinks to sell at the temperature her customers like in this hot area.

She started both business over six years ago.

She has a regular clientele she was able to build over time. She wants to keep going with her business and grow even more. This is her third loan with Kiva. She is very happy to know that she can count on financial support, as this gives her the confidence to move ahead with her business. She also promises to once again make her payments, as she did with her previous loans.
