Nilufar's story

Nilufar is a 26-year-old resident of Yavan city. She is divorced and a careful mother of a six year old son. She is the family's main breadwinner and has been working for years as a teacher. She works at a public school where she teaches native language and literature. In her free time, she buys and sells school supplies.

Nilufar has applied for a loan in order to renovate her home. She will buy building materials and with the remainder of the loan, pay for the services of a building professional. Nilufar is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan for the third time through Kiva’s field partner IMON.
