Dunia Mayela's story

Dunia is a small business owner who sells clothing, shoes and from a very young age she has had a trade to help meet her families’ needs.

When Dunia began her business, she started with very few savings that her partner gave her and she used them to stock her inventory and with the loans from Afodenic (Kiva’s field partner) given to her in a previous loan. Dunia has had better sales and more customers.

Dunia has also been using the loans to make improvements to her home which gives her great satisfaction. With the new loan she will buy zinc sheets, tile, solder, and solvents to change her kitchen’s roof. This will allow her to have a better home.
