Merlinda's story

Merlinda is married and a modest and enterprising 32-year-old. She has run a general store for many years, so she has a very good understanding of this type of business. Her store is located in an excellent and easy-to-find spot where many people come to buy her goods every day. Running her business has made Merlinda become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and help support her family's everyday needs.

Merlinda would like a loan of 800 USD through Kiva's field partner KIF to buy additional groceries to resell, such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee and the like. She hopes to expand her business as the result of her investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
