A loan of $2,800 helped to buy used shoes to resell.


Mrika's story

Mrika has just invested in a store in a neighborhood of a city in northwestern part of the country. Her intention was from the very beginning to sell used shoes and the loan she is requesting at the moment will be used for this purpose. In the past, she had requested a loan from different institutions that operate in the country, but she was unsuccessful until recently when she came to VFA. It was there that she was told that despite the fact that she was not eligible for regular loans, she was eligible for startup loans through Kiva, and she literally was ecstatic.

Mrika is fifty one years old and has three children, who are still in school.
