A loan of $1,500 helped to buy washing machines.

Nubia Esther's story

Nubia used her Kiva loan to buy small appliances that she sold to her customers on credit thus increasing her accounts receivable portfolio. She is currently applying for a new Kiva loan to buy washing machines because she will soon add washing machine services to her income. She will offer the service especially to housewives so that they can rest a bit from manual washing under the hot sun. Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: “Thank you for trusting in my business. I did very well during the loan.”
