A loan of $850 helped to buy beer and tents,.


Andrea's story

Andrea has a business selling beer. She invested her whole Kiva loan, buying lots of cases and increasing her stock and working capital. Right now she is getting ready for carnival, when sales normally increase. She knows the business and knows she should have a lot more inventory, not just to sell directly to her customers, but to distribute to liquor stores when they run out. That is the reason that she has turned to a Kiva loan. Once again, she will work very hard to be able to really prosper more every day. Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following: "Thank you very much for your contributions and help that have benefitted my business and especially my family." The new loan she is applying for today will be invested in buying beer and in tents, so her customers are more comfortable and can enjoy family gatherings at her business, masked and dancing to the beat of the drums.
