Elviana's story

Elviana is taking a loan of $1000 to improve her business. She is running a kiosk that helps her to generate income for her family. She will use the loan to buy stock to keep in her store such as slippers, cigarettes, soft drinks (Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sagiko and Fanta) and biscuits. She opened her kiosk two years ago with her own working capital of $500. Elviana is a hard-working woman and she hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
