Elizabeth's story

With her last Kiva loan, Elizabeth bought school and office supplies like notebooks, note cards, and erasers, and personal hygiene products, along with a freezer. With the loan, she was able to increase her customer base and sell more office supply products and a lot of soft drinks and refreshments as well. Currently, she is applying for a loan for personal hygiene products, like tooth paste, soaps, sanitizers, and a variety of other merchandise like accessories, footwear, etc. The goal is to increase sales in the last quarter of the year, the season when sales are usually up. She sends a message to her Kiva lenders: "Thank you so much for financing my business. As with the last loan, I hope to live up to your trust."
