Jemelita's story

Jemelita is a modest and enterprising 26 year old and is married. She has a very good understanding of and experiences with general stores. She has one of her own which has been running for many years, and her store is located in an excellent spot that is easy to find and many people always come to buy her goods every day.

Running her business has made Jemelita become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help add to her family's every day income. She would like a loan of $1,000 USD through Kiva's 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.

Jemelita 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.
