Marina's story

Marina is a 34-year-old woman from Ungheni town, Moldova. She is married and has two little sons that make her happy. Her husband works for a local shop which sells agricultural technique. Five years ago, Marina and her husband invested some money in their own business. They bought a booth at the local open-air market. Twice a week her husband sells different tools, sanitary items and other goods there.

Two years ago, Marina realized her dream to have her own house, and all their savings were invested in new house renovation. Now, Marina wants to invest in their family business. Her main goal now is to buy new goods to expand the range of merchandise, but she does not have enough money. For this reason, Marina asks a loan from Kiva, which she hopes will help her sustain their small family business.
