A loan of $650 helped to buy a fast food cart.


Mildred's story

Thanks to the support Mildred received with her Kiva loan, she was able to buy general merchandise. She is very pleased because she was able to help her husband with the household expenses. Since she had more inventory, Mildred was able to sell more and use the profits to buy a television for her children. For this reason, she says to the Kiva lenders: “Thank you for helping me have my own business so that I can generate more income.”


Mildred is currently applying for another Kiva loan so that she can buy a fast food cart. She plans to take advantage of the experience she gained from her current business so that she can have an additional source of income. This result will make this Kiva loan a successful investment.
