A loan of $850 helped to purchase more spare parts to sell.


Alphonsine's story

Alphonsine is 29 years old, and she is married with three children between 2 months and 9 years old. She has owned her small store selling spare parts for about three years. She opens her business from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday.

Alphonsine has now requested a Kiva loan so that she can expand her store by stocking enough spare parts, and some other goods which seem to be in high demand in her business area. Alphonsine plans to start saving, as well as improving her family's situation. With any profits that she earns, she plans to reinvest in her business and to pay school fees for her children.
