A loan of $725 helped to buy products from the family shopping basket and beer.

Victoria's story

With her previous Kiva loan Rosa saw her store better stocked and with more customers visiting because she managed to buy and display supplies, food, beverages, and many of the products that turn over most every day. She also bought a variety of merchandise that she had promoted from her specialized catalog. It sold quickly because her customers found what they were looking for at specially discounted prices.

Now she's planning to get a Kiva loan to supply her store again with products from the family shopping basket. She'll invest in beer in particular, to respond to the coming party season.

Her message to Kiva lenders is this: "I'm enormously grateful for the help received and I hope you can use this model throughout the country."
