A loan of $600 helped to buy varied merchandise for a general store.


Josefina Patricia's story

Thanks to her previous Kiva loan, Josefina was able to purchase varied merchandise for her general store, such as cooking oil, rice, plantains, and toilet paper. With these goods she was able to stock her business and her sales increased as a result. Josefina says to Kiva lenders: "Thanks for your collaboration and help, God bless you."

Currently, Josefina is applying for another Kiva loan, with which she will buy additional items to stock her store. She believes that this investment will be successful, because she will buy more of the products that sell the best, positively impacting her income.
