A loan of $250 helped to buy display cases.


Hilda Marleni's story

Hilda is a very hard-working woman. She lives with her spouse, with whom she has two children, whom they love very much. It is for their sake that she works hard every day, so that they can live with dignity and become honest people. Hilda could not attend university because of her scant resources, but she would have loved to become a nurse. She works every day at her small business, selling lollipops and moulded jelly. She works about nine hours a day and can tend to as many as thirty customers per day. She attributes her success to her charisma as a saleswoman and to her amiability towards customers. Hilda is very grateful to Kiva lenders, since, thanks to their help, she will be able to buy display cases for her business. Her products will be more visible and her sales will increase, enabling her to keep fighting to make her greatest dream come true: "I want to buy a shop and start selling clothes".
