Lilia's story

Lilia is a 50-year-old woman from the town of Riscani, Moldova. She is married and has a happy family. Lilia, together with her husband Ivan, deal with the selling of spare parts for bikes. She started this business a few years ago. The income she gets is the only source for the family budget. In order to maintain the business and to continue to earn income it needs to grow.

Now the season to ride bikes has started, Lilia needs a loan from Kiva to renew the stock with merchandise.
