A loan of $3,550 helps to buy merchandise to sell at her food market stall.


Tatiana's story

Tatiana is a 44-year-old woman from the town of Causeni, Moldova. She is a hardworking woman who has a lovely family. Tatiana is married and has two sons, one who is already married and another who is small and cute. In order to support her family, she started a business five years ago. Tatiana sells various spices from a vending stall at a food market in Causeni. Her eldest son recently got married and had a child, so he decided to move away. In order to provide him with financial assistance, she had to withdraw money from her business.

Tatiana currently needs a Kiva loan to buy merchandise. This will give her the opportunity to increase her assortment of goods so that she can continue her business.


This loan is special because:

It enables those living in rural areas to grow their businesses at a lower interest rate.
