A loan helped to buy tins of varnish, paint, thinner, putty and solvent.


Blandine's story

The first two loans that you granted to Blandine have enabled her to increase her stock of various products such as varnish, solvent and paint in her hardware store. She thanks you for you invaluable support. The profits from her sales have allowed her to buy furniture for her house.

The new hardware store is managed by her sister. In order to build a solid financial base for her retirement, Blandine wants to develop her business even more. This is why she is asking for a new loan to buy tins of varnish, paint, thinner and putty. Her goal is to further expand her business.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Monique ROSS.
