A loan of $125 helped to buy foodstuffs, kitchenware and other products.

Bernard's story

Bernard, aged 50, owns a store in Mwambalazi. He lives there with his wife and five children.

He started his business four years ago from his savings. He has grown the business since then, and his income from it helps to support his family. He stocks all the everyday products that people in his neighborhood want. He listens to his customers and stocks new products when he can. That's where Kiva comes in: Bernard wants to stock new products for his store and needs this Yehu Microfinance Trust loan to fund the investment. He will buy foodstuffs, kitchenware and other products that his customers have asked him to sell, especially during the season of Ramadhan- Muslim's fasting holy month. Your loan will allow him to keep his customers, and also provide his neighborhood with a store nearby that they can easily come to.

Bernard is a hard-working man. He starts his day at 6 in the morning and often works 12 hours a day, Monday to Sunday. He is confident that all his hard work will pay off one day.
