Komyla's story

Komyla is 37 and from Yavan. She is a very kind, well-mannered person and a caring mother. She is married and lives with her daughter, who is in school. Like every mother, Komyla wants to give her child the best upbringing and education possible. She has a year's experience of work in sewing, which she acquired in a sewing workshop.

In order to improve her financial situation, Komyla is planning to start her own business. With this goal, she is turning to Kiva lenders for help. She needs a loan to buy a sewing machine and other sewing accessories. She hopes that, thanks to you, she will soon begin her work and attract customers, which will help her increase her family budget. She thanks you in advance.
