Susan is 24 years old and is married with one kid of 3 months.

Susan is a self-employed businesswoman selling spare parts in her area. The entrepreneurs of this area are interested in selling spare parts as they are purchased more often than other goods. Susan has been in this business for about a year and her shop is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Since her customers keep increasing beyond her selling capacity, Susan needs to request a Kiva loan which will allow her to expand her shop by adding a variety of spare parts, mainly those which are in high demand by her customers.

With this additional business, Susan will hopefully earn more profits which, in turn, will allow her to start reserving for future reinvestment in her business as well as for the wellbeing of her family.
