A loan helped to buy gasoline to sell in bottles at her homemade fuel station.

Ermelinda's story

Ermelinda is 36 years old and married, with four children.

She works hard to provide for her family. She runs a homemade fuel station in he village and requested a $1,500 loan through KIF to buy more fuel to resell in bottles at her handmade fuel station.

She has borrowed and repaid five loans from KIF before this loan (this is her third loan post on Kiva's website). She has been running the fuel-selling business for four years.

She successfully repaid her previous loan and now she has requested another loan to further build her businesses.
