A loan of $1,100 helped to buy more tables and chairs to improve her restaurant and to buy sacks of rice, oil, meat, chicken, and fish.


Flor's story

Thank you for supporting Flor, who used her previous Kiva loan to buy primary materials and ingredients in greater quantities, earning discounts and increasing her food production, which she sold quickly. In turn, she was able to replace the high-cost loans that had not allowed her any profit. Since she invested her previous loan, she also remodeled the front of her business and fixed up the kitchen, because she now has a higher income. She says to her Kiva lenders: "Thank you for helping me to grow my business. I am very grateful to God and to you for giving me this opportunity." She is now applying for another Kiva loan, which she will use to buy more tables and chairs to improve her restaurant. She also needs this loan to buy sacks of rice, oil, meat, chicken, and fish to make meals and snacks in greater quantities, thus increasing her family's income.
