A loan of $700 helped to buy stock items for her store.

Giovanna Jazelli's story

Giovanna planned everything very well. She repaid her Kiva loan quickly in order to renew it now and reinvest again during this season that promises much commercial movement. The end of the year and especially the beginning of the year when the school year starts is when her most profitable customers, students and parents, return.

By renewing her Kiva loan she will stock her business with stationery items: notebooks, writing tablets, construction paper and school supplies to respond to the approaching demand. She will also buy dyes, nail polish, bracelets, earrings and rings so that her potential customers will fix their attention on her display cases elegantly decorated with Christmas themes.

Giovanna is a very grateful woman and sends a message to everyone at Kiva: “Thank you for trusting in young businesspeople who seek to earn income through their businesses in order to help our families.”
