Abida is very happy with her Kiva loan because with it she was able to buy materials to make her artisan crafts. She sold her craft work, satisfying her customers' needs.

Now Abida is dedicating all her attention to her son and her business as she is no longer working for another business. She is happy with this because she is able to give other unemployed people the opportunity to earn an income.

Abida sends the following message to Kiva lenders: "Thank you for the loan. It has benefited my family and me greatly."

Abida is currently applying for a Kiva loan that she will use to buy artisan materials like stones, quartz, glass, beads, needles, laces, clothes wire, small pieces of wood, glue, and paint.
