Carolina's story

Carolina is a modest and an enterprising 39-year-old married woman. She has a very good understanding and experiences with a general store. She has one of her own, which 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 Carolina become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's everyday income.

She would like a loan of $600 through Kiva field partner KIF to help improve her store. She plans to use this loan to buy an additional supply of goods such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee, and many other things to resell at her store.

Carolina 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.
