Olinda's story

Olinda is 34 years old and married with five children. She's had a kiosk since 2011 where many people buy goods every day. Running her business has made Olinda independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She'd like a loan of $500 from Kiva field partner Kaebauk Investimentu no Finansas to help improve her kiosk by buying stock such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, Fanta, Coke, Sagiko, water, shampoo, soap, fish, bread, slippers and coffee. She'd also like to buy a refrigerator to keep drinks cold. Olinda hopes to run a bigger business in the future and thanks lenders for the opportunity.

Her husband is a teacher. She lives with her family in a simple house. She has animals like pigs and chickens as an extra business.
