A loan of $600 helped to buy groceries, rice, sugar, beverages.

Antonia's story

Antonia lives in her sister’s house where she has a small neighborhood grocery store. She started the business because her sister pushed her to get involved in something because she had no income. Seeing this, her sister made a loan to her so that she could start and gradually she bought more and more items for her store.

She requested the loan to buy rice, sugar, pasta, beverages, candy, cookies and other items to stock her store because around where she lives there is a lot of demand.

She is happy because we gave her this opportunity to have a loan especially with Kiva.
