About us
The Enterprising Entrepreneur recognizes there is a clear need in the local community and then steps up to fill it. The best way to describe is by example -

<br /><br />
<a href="www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=34503">I MADE WENTEN</a> a farmer, who figures out that fertilizer helps his farm be more productive - so he not only gets fertilizer for his farm, he starts selling it to his neighbors and teaching them how it can improve production. Note: This is the loan that inspired the creation of this team, and it is his picture you see above.

<br /><br /><a href="www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=18226">; MARIA JOSEFA GOMEZ PEREZ</a> a needlework craftsperson, decides that supplies are too expensive and hard to get what she wanted - so she changes and buys a van to make a mobile store to take the raw materials out in the country. Check out her Journal entry.

<br /><br /><a href="www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=60681">; Haoua Dembele</a> a fabric dyer, gets tired of paying high prices for fabric, so saves up and makes a buying trip herself. Now she is purchasing large quantities of raw fabric for a discount then selling to her neighbors....better quality and cheaper as well.
