Jennie Lynn
Jennie is the proud owner of an automotive paint shop in her village for the past 14 years. She is married and has four children from pre-school age to high school age, and her greatest aspiration is to be able to afford to send all of her children to college. She started her business with capital from her husband who had saved money from his income in another paint shop for them to start their own. With her Kiva loan, Jennie will be buying paint and other supplies needed for the shop. She also has additional income from a plot of land she farms on and part of her loan will be used to buy fertilizer and to rent a tractor for the fields. She hopes that with this extra money, she will be able to attract more customers and be able to save money to put away to help with her children's education.
