A loan of $1,700 helped to stock her store and make physical upgrades to it.

Antonia's story

Antonia’s very grateful to Kiva because it’s supporting her and her working capital is growing. She used her first loan to buy basic staple items in large amounts and for cash which led to her having her shelves always well stocked with snacks, foodstuffs and liquor. Today, she’s applying for a new Kiva loan she’ll use to make physical upgrades to the shop in order to expand the space for her inventory; she will also buy snacks, foodstuffs, canned goods, soft-drinks and beverages. Antonia has new expectations with her future loan because she’s growing all the time. Her message to Kiva lenders is the following: “Thank you…I’m grateful for your having supported me.”
