Hangotiana Sylvia's story
Sylvia's hard work, combined with the financial support she received from Kiva lenders, helped her grocery store develop well. She was able to buy basic necessities and to meet customers expectations thanks to the previous loan. She would like to thank all those who helped her and supported her shop. Sylvia was able to generate more revenues, which she used to buy a plot of land in the countryside and to save up some money at the bank. Because of the current increase in the price of supplies, it is crucial to have a sufficient amount of stock, hence this new loan request to buy large quantities of bags of rice, flour, cans of oil and other extra basic necessities. Her dream is to build a house, which she was not able to do so far and that she strives to achieve.
