A loan of $1,125 helped to stock her business.


Silvia's story

Silvia used her previous Kiva loan to buy a new freezer and she is making much more ice. The money also helped her with her cell phone card, paper goods, and feminine accessories business. She is consolidating her business by selling ice in bulk. Her children have a positive attitude and a great desire to get ahead with their own work. Her message to the Kiva lenders is, “With responsibility, dedication, and imagination, one can get ahead in one’s business.” She is using her Kiva loan to buy edible items, miscellaneous merchandise, paper goods, school utensils, ladies’ accessories, etc. She plans to increase her utility through this investment and this successful use for her Kiva loan.
