Ermelinda's story

This is Ermelinda, a talented and an enterprising 38-year-old women who possesses a strong desire to get ahead. She has a good understanding and experiences with her own business selling vegetables at a local market which she has been doing it for many years now. Running the business has made Ermelinda become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and her family's everyday needs. She had previously borrowed and repaid all of her loan and now would like a loan of 500 USD through KIF to help improve her local business selling vegetables. She plans to use this loan to buy more vegetables so that she could sell back to the community and generate income for her family. Ermelinda hopes to expand the size of her business in the future as the result of the investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
