A loan of $2,825 helped to order more drinks.


Rosemary's story

Rosemary is a retired mother of 6. She runs her own business, which sells Coca-Cola products. She is 57 years old. She is requesting a Kiva loan so that she can grow her business by buying more stocks for her shop.

Rosemary has been running her business for one year. Before she started the business, she worked at a college as a matron and guidance counselor for 27 years. Today, Rosemary spends her days at her red and white cooler where she sells drinks. When asked what challenges she finds in running her own business, she says she does not have enough working capital to grow her business, and as such she can not order enough stock and sometimes goes for a period of time without having drinks to sell.

Rosemary is hopeful that once she gets her loan, she will be able to order more drinks. This will help her earn more profits from her business.
