A loan of $1,200 helped to buy more imported food to sell to her customers.

Anonymous's story

Our borrower is 32 years old, married and has two children, both of whom are in school. In 2003, she went into business for herself by selling imported food. Her goal was to earn enough money to help her husband support their family. She works seven days a week, 10 hours a day and earns about Le 750,000 a month. She has an excellent repayment history and is applying for a new loan, for Le 500,000, to buy more imported food to sell to her customers. She hopes that this loan will allow her to increase her monthly profits by about Le 250,000 so that she can complete construction of her home and open a second business in a new location. She thanks all Kiva lenders for their support.
