A loan of $150 helped more stock for the grocery store including shoes and rice.

Sancha's story

Sancha M. B. owns the only medium-sized shop in her village and she stocks everything imaginable, from rice to running shoes to the red bangles worn by many of the women in Nepal.

Sancha is applying for a Kiva loan of Rs. 10,000 that she will use to purchase more items for her shop. Sancha says that she particularly needs to buy comfortable, affordable sandal-style shoes and more rice, as these are the most popular items in her shop.

Sancha has two daughters, one son and a husband, all of whom help her out in the shop. Sancha says that she and her husband make all of their business decisions together, including the decision to take out a Kiva loan.

In the future Sancha hopes that she can continue to expand her business and begin supplying stock to smaller shops in the area. She would like to be able to provide her children with a very good quality education so that they can pursue whichever career they think will make them happy.
