Joaninha's story

Joaninha is a modest and enterprising 33-year-old who is married. She has a very good understanding and experience with general stores. She has one of her own, which is has been running for many years. Her store is located in an excellent spot where it is easy to find and many people always come to buy her goods every day. Running her business has made Joaninha become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's every day income. She would like a loan of $500 through KIVA field partner KIF to help improve her store. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supply goods, such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee and many other things to re-sell at her store. Joaninha hopes to expand the size of her business in the future as the result of her investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
