Majimbo's story

Majimbo is requesting a Kiva loan of Kes 20,000 to boost her general store business. The loan she is requesting will be used to increase her working capital and stock up her general store in order to satisfy her customers’ requests. This will allow her to earn a better income. Specifically, she will buy rice, sugar, oil, soap, coffee bags, shampoo, and matches to offer for sale. Majimbo is grateful to Kiva lenders for the support they offer to small retailers with meager means so that they can be engaged in a dignified working activity.
