Lydia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy more cereals for Lydia to sell.


Lydia's story

Lydia is married and has five children. For the past six years she has sold cereals to earn an income. She sells them in an advantageous area primarily to locals. Inadequate working capital is her main challenge in business.

Lydia has taken out and successfully repaid a previous loan through Kiva's field partner SMEP. She has now applied for a 40,000 KES loan to buy more cereals to sell. She hopes that in the future she will be successful in life.
