Meryem's story

Meryem is a 60-year-old woman from Trabzon. Together with her husband, Meryem has been selling fruits and vegetables at markets for 25 years to earn her income while raising four children.

Meryem first took out microcredit loans in 2012 via TGMP, a Kiva field partner, and found an opportunity to set up market stalls in different towns while increasing the variety of her products.

Meryem wishes to use her Kiva loan to buy more fruits and vegetables.

Meryem is grateful for all the support from Kiva and TGMP.
