A loan of $875 helped to buy shoes and assorted goods in greater quantity.


Andrea's story

Andrea is applying for her second Kiva loan. With her previous loan she bought assorted goods, sheets, towels, and small domestic appliances. Her capital increased slightly.

This time she will use her new Kiva loan for shoes and assorted goods in greater quantity. She has some savings that she will add to the purchase. That way she will get discounts that she will pass on to her customers to give them a better deal.

Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following, “The work you do is vital because you help families make progress with the loans. May God always bless you.”
