Her current business resulted from an opportunity presented to her three years ago and now it enables her to provide for her household. Her sales are conducted from a shop that is located in her home and it allows her to have direct contact with her customers. Fanis buys her products from wholesalers that offer the best prices and discount specials. They also guarantee that they will have products in stock.
At the moment, Fanis is applying for a Kiva loan so that she can buy products in bulk and with cash such as oil, rice, pasta, and sugar. This will strengthen her business and provide a variety of products for her inventory so that she can respond to her customers with what they need. She will generate more income, thus resulting in a successful investment of her Kiva loan.
