A loan helped to buy 160 pieces of No. 8 rebar, 30 pieces of No. 10 rebar, and other rebar, and to save money to take care of his family.


Kouka's story

Kouka is the father of 4 children, 3 of whom are in school. He is a salesman, and opened a hardware store in a market in the capital. He has been in this business for 9 years. He repaid his second Kiva loan, and has requested another one to buy 160 pices of No.8 rebar, 30 pieces of No. 10 rebar, and other rebar to increase his sales and profits.

Kouka plans to use his profits to reinvest in his business and save money to take care of his family. He encourages everyone to protect themselves from the Covid-19 virus.
