Portia's story

Portia is a woman with dreams. She lives in Suhum with her two children. Both children are in school, and she is determined for them to have a good and well-rounded education.

Portia is 37 years old, and for the past 14 years she has run her own cosmetics shop. She gets the expected individuals who patronize her products. The problem she has had is that she doesn’t have much money to build up her inventory, so some clients aren’t able to get what they want.

With the help of Kiva lenders and Advans, Portia is asking for a loan so that she can buy new and different brands of cosmetics, thereby growing her business so she can support her children.

Portia wants to make a difference in people’s lives, and you can help her !
