Constance and her friend need a loan of $1,000 in order to boost their businesses and increase their profit margins. Her husband is an unskilled carpenter who gets jobs sporadically so he does not have a regular source of income. The money that Constance makes from her cross border trading helps with the family’s livelihood and it would be a great help if she got this loan from Kiva.
