A loan of $1,175 helped to buy ingredients and disposable items.

Marlyn's story

Marlyn used her previous Kiva loan to buy an electric corn mill and some raw materials like wheat, cheese, cold cuts and disposables for table service. Her loan was of much benefit because she was able to buy a larger amount of raw materials getting better prices that way and she was also able to obtain a work tool that she otherwise would not have had capital available for.

She’s currently applying for a new Kiva loan that she’ll use to buy raw materials like cheese and disposable products to expand her offer and to have the capacity to take care of a larger number of new customers.

Marlyn sends the following message to Kiva lenders: “I am very grateful for the help received and I pray to God that He shower you with blessings.”
