A loan of $2,700 helped to add some more shelves to the grocery store.

Lumturie's story

Lumturie is in her sixties and has been widowed for a long time now. Her children are grownups. For the past four years she has been operating a little grocery store and the profit according to her has been okay. However, her daughter and son-in-law have been almost jobless for the past couple years, despite their efforts to find something in their field, and Lumturie considers herself responsible of helping them out financially. She says, "I'm helping them in addition to myself and most of all, I do all this, for my grandchildren. I want them to grow up healthy and get an education."

This is Lumturie's second loan, with the previous one being paid off. For now, she wants to repair the store and add some more shelves, and later on she would like to stock up on more inventory items. When she learned that the loan she is requesting is a Kiva loan, she could not hide her appreciation for the lenders. Lumturie is aware that she cannot do this without their support and she wants to thank them all in advance.
