A loan of $550 helped to pay for soft drinks and phone minutes to sell.


Perline's story

Perline is very grateful to KIVA lenders for their trust. With the previous loan, she was able to pay for quantities of beverages. Her business generated more revenues, which she used to open a “cash point”. With her sources of income now diversified, she is very happy.

This new loan will enable her to bolster her inventory of soft drinks while developing her taxiphone [pay phone] business. Her dream is to acquire a plot of land in the future.
