A loan of $1,550 helped to buy groceries.


Doris's story

Doris is a 35 year old single woman without children. However, she has taken on the great responsibility of providing support to her parents who live in her high quality home. Doris works selling groceries and, thanks to her business, she has provided support to her younger brothers to pay the expenses that their advanced schooling is generating. She feels very motivated by the accomplishments they are obtaining. She notes the fact that her business is located in the busiest part of her district which benefits her considerably because she has good customers. This is her first experience with Kiva. She is grateful for the opportunity and promises to make her payments on time. For this opportunity she seeks $1550 which she will use to buy groceries such as sacks of rice, sugar, canned fish, preserved fruit, and milk, among other items.
