They work hard all day long to generate an income but the family needs more and Roila decided to start a fast food cafe to earn additional income. Several times, she has requested loans from local credit providers, but her loan requests are always rejected because of the lack of experience in her new business. Her current loan request was approved within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. Roila has already purchased all the needed inventory for running a cafe and needs money to buy tables and chairs. She will arrange her cafe and offer the clients a comfortable atmosphere.
Summertime is high season for cafe businesses and Roila hopes it will be profitable and that she will attract many customers since there is no similar cafe nearby. The profit will be reinvested in the same business and Roila will be able to improve the living conditions of her family.
