Katerin's story

Katerin is 18 and lives with her husband, David, in their own home. She has a small grocery store in a very friendly environment on the first floor of her home. She opened the business about a year ago and saw it was as good a way to earn an income as in the field. She said that she decided to sell groceries because she felt that working in the field was more complicated for her since she wanted to give her husband as much attention as possible. She lives in an area somewhat far from the district capital, so the groceries and other products she sells are in high demand, among which are sugar, rice, eggs, canned goods, snacks and personal-care products. What she likes most about her job is that it allows her to meet and get to know a lot of people. This is her first Kiva loan and she feels grateful to receive financial support to help her make headway. She is requesting the loan to purchase wholesale supplies for her business, including primary-need products like rice, sugar, grains, canned goods and other items.
