Mary's story

Mary wants to thank her Kiva lenders for their support with her previous loan which had enabled her to food items for her food market business. She has paid off her loan successfully and her business is running smoothly.

She has requested a new loan to pay for an additional cooler, fish, flour and cooking oil to increase her production of fish and chips and assist her in running her business.

She plans to continue use the profits from her sales to provide financial support for her family.
