A loan of $925 helped to purchase leather in large quantities.


Davaa's story

Davaa, 47 years old, lives with her son and daughter in the Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Her husband passed away recently and she is carrying the whole burden of raising her children alone.

She has been working as a seamstress for more than 20 years, and she began working for a private company in 2003. However, she decided to quit her job when she realized that running a workshop on her own would be more profitable than working for someone else. Using her first Kiva loan, she purchased a sewing machine and began her own business.

Her business is doing well but she is currently experiencing a shortage of raw materials. She is therefore requesting a loan of 1,300,000 MNT to purchase leather in large quantities. This will help her to run her business smoothly without worrying about a shortage of raw materials. The borrower is a very hardworking individual who is striving for a better future.
