Alenys Meleth's story

With her Kiva loan, Alenys bought everything she needed to increase sales in her fast food business, and thanks to the loan, this was exactly what she managed to do. Now she wants to buy a blender, pots, pans and a stove, which will make her work more comfortable and will make her more efficient in serving her customers. In addition, she will buy some raw materials and supplies in large quantities, so that she can continue to take advantage of discounts for buying in bulk and for cash purchases. This is exactly what makes the Kiva loans successful. Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following, "I wish you many blessings, and hope that you will continue supporting small business-people so that they can fulfill their dreams of accomplishing their goals."
