A loan of $600 helped to buy more groceries for sale.

Jane's story

Jane, 51, has a grocery store where she sells groceries such as cabbages, bananas, etc. Every day she sells on a cash basis and also buys her products in cash. She is assisted by her daughter when she goes for teaching children in her private nursery school. However, she operates the grocery fully during the weekends.

Everyone living nearby congregates at Jane's store because it is a nice, friendly place and they feel well cared for, which is a growing sentiment among her clientele. Therefore, as her business grows, buying more volume in cash becomes increasingly difficult.

This is why Lucy has turned to Yehu for another Kiva loan. This will allow her to keep a stock of daily consumption products, since she has to have enough inventory to respond immediately to her customers, who are mothers who must prepare food for their families.

She will use her loan to buy more groceries for sale. Her loan is sure to be successful because she is basing her request on market demand, and her suppliers will give her discounts for buying more volume and paying in cash. This will be beneficial to Jane's income.
