A loan of $1,725 helped to expand her grocery business by selling a wider variety of products to earn more money to support her family.


Zarina's story

Zarina is 46 years old, married, and has a child. She has her own grocery store, which she started months ago. She sells grocery and household products. Her husband helps her with the business.

Due to her honesty, she has achieved a great deal, but she wants to keep significantly developing her business. She wants to increase sales and, in the future, open a big grocery store. That is the basic reason why Zarina is requesting a loan.

She is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. She is asking for a loan for the second time through Kiva’s field partner IMON International. She hopes Kiva lenders will support her.


This loan is special because:

It supports the well being of women and their families.
