Daisy Alida
Sra. Daisy is a merchant and has been in business for more than six years. She sells all types of writing materials, school supplies, and gifts for important occasions. Daisy is requesting a Kiva loan so that she can increase her operating capital. She says that she wants to buy more gifts for Mother’s Day since that time is approaching. For this reason, it was recommended that she apply for a loan so that she can continue working in her business and generate more income.

Sra. Daisy is a widow and has no children. She lives alone in her house. Daisy rents out part of the first floor to people who are also merchants. According to her, she is in urgent need of the money because she does not want to lose this opportunity to increase her inventory since prices are low at the moment and will go up in the next month right before Mother’s Day. During that month, she sells more when compared to other months.
