A loan of $475 helped to buy supplies for food preparation, such as rice, meat and oil.


Mejumaa's story

Mejumaa, a food market operator, previously received a Kiva loan which she used to purchase bundles of wheat flour, vegetable oil, and baking powder for her dumpling-making business, expanding the possibility that new customers might come to her establishment, and this is exactly what happened.

Today she is very happy and for this reason she is applying for a new Kiva loan. With the new loan she will buy supplies for food preparation, such as rice, meat and oil. With this purchase she hopes to gain discounts for purchasing in cash and in greater volume, thereby reducing her costs and increasing her profits.

Since receiving her Kiva loan she has had a greater influx of customers and she has improved her family income. She says to her Kiva lenders, "Thank you for permitting me to improve my business."
