Teresa's story

Teresa is a modest and enterprising, married, 29-year-old. She has a very good understanding of, and experience with, general stores. She has one of her own which she has been running for many years. Her store is located in an excellent spot, which is easy to find, and many people always come to buy her goods every day.

Running her business has made Teresa 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 $750 through Kiva field partner KIF to help improve her store. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supply of goods such as biscuits, noodles, sugar, coffee, and many other things to resell at her store. Teresa 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.
