Jaki's story

Jaki is an 18-year-old young woman without familial responsibilities who has gone out on her own. She has an adobe home that her parents gave her. After finishing high school she couldn't afford to attend college outside of town, and that's when her mother gave her the idea to make a living selling clothes. It is a very interactive business, which allows Jaki to meet a lot of friends and at the same time grow as a person, though the rainy season is a huge inconvenience for carrying out her work around town. She prefers to go out on weekends with clothes like pants and blouses that she picks out personally. She's on her second batch of clothes to sell, and she plans to use your support to increase her merchandise. She wants to have steady work, with the goal to go to college for a business administration degree and fulfill a dream she has had since she was a little girl. This is her first loan with Kiva partner MFP, and she feels very content and at the same time grateful for the opportunity you are providing. She hopes to make her payments on time. She is requesting the loan to purchase blouses, pants and shirts to sell in the coming days.
