Elise's story

Elise is a 44-year-old widow and the mother of three children who go to school in town. She has a shop where she's been selling clothes and women's shoes for a few years. She gets her supplies in a market in her subregion. Her clientele is ever-increasing thanks to the good location of her shop. In order to meet customer demand, she sought and obtained financial support from Kiva's partner, Finadev. This loan will enable her to pay the rent and her children's school expenses.
