Nancy's story

This is 48-year-old Nancy. She is married and has three children, aged 26, 19 and 17. She has one additional dependent, who lives with her for proper care.

In 1998, Nancy established her cosmetics, suitcases, Coleman clothing, and textiles business. She began her business just to enable her to provide some of her basic needs for herself. Her business is located at city centre and her main customers are both men and women. Working 6 days a week and 13 hours a day, she earns about Le 650,000 every month from this business.

Nancy would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000. She has already received and successfully repaid four loans, and now requires a new loan in order to purchase additional business stock. She hopes that this loan will help her with more income to enable her to provide her basic needs.

In the future, Nancy still maintains the plan of running to Guinea. She is saying thanks to Kiva. She thanks you for your support.
