Marie's story

Marie is 56 years old, married with three children who are 24, 26, and 35 years old. Marie is widely known as a self-employed businesswoman selling a variety of goods in her shop mainly tomatoes, juice, soda, biscuits, etc. She has been working hard at this business for about 5 years and the hours of her business are from 6 am to 6 pm every day.

After realizing that a large number of her customers were suggesting to her to sell foodstuffs, mainly rice, Irish potatoes, and beans, Marie decided to request a Kiva loan so that she can satisfy the demand of her customers through selling the above-mentioned goods. With this additional business, Marie will hopefully earn more profits, which in turn will allow her to keep reinvesting in her business as well as taking care of her family.
