A loan of $300 helped to stock her new grocery shop.


Helen's story

Hello Kiva community. Meet an energetic woman, Helen. She is a catalyst of social change in her village and is involved in the distribution of food products from her farm. She grows and sells vegetables. She also sells milk and eggs from her farm.

Helen has been in the business of farming for more than 15 years, and she has made great progress. Through involvement in sales, she has acquired good customer relationship skills which she uses to her advantage. Her customers love her services.

Helen is an entrepreneurial woman who has discovered that she could increase her profits by opening a new grocery shop. This idea is remarkable because there is not even a single grocery shop in her area. She will therefore enjoy the benefits of operating as a monopolist.

Helen has looked for good suppliers and is now seeking a loan to stock her store. She is good in business and has good customer relations skills; this will enable her to excel in her new enterprise.

Helen is certain of the profits from her new venture. She will now be able to pay for her children's tuition fees and give them a decent lifestyle. Your kindness will have a lasting impact on her heart. She thanks her lenders in advance.


This loan is special because:

It finances smallholder farmers to purchase dairy cows, chickens, cereals and farming equipment.
