A loan helped to buy clothes to sell and expand her business.

Valentina's story

Valentina is a 39-year-old businesswoman from the Causeni town. She is married and has two children. Both of her children are students at the moment, and a part of the family budget goes towards their studying.

Valentina deals in the jewelry trade on the local market. She already managed to create loyal clients by offering goods of high quality and by excellent communicable capacities. She wants to expand her business, so she decided to sell men's clothes also. She rented another small shop where she also keeps her goods.

Now, Valentina needs a loan from Kiva to buy clothes for marketing. As a result, she will be able to develop her business and earn money to pay for her sons' studies.
