Refika's story

Refika, age 45, is a mother with 3 children, living in Van. Her husband is unemployed. As the sole breadwinner of her family, Refika works at her own haberdashery and helps with her children’s education fees.

Refika was introduced to microcredit in 2014. Refika also helps other financially-challenged women in her neighborhood by displaying their handmade products at her store.

With her Kiva loan, Refika plans to buy children’s clothing, buttons and zippers for her store.

Refika appreciates all the support.
