A loan of $1,425 helped to stock up on inventory items for her all-in-one store and bar-cafe.


Tereze's story

Tereze wants to start up a bar-cafe, plus groceries and snacks, or all-in-one type of activity, in the village where she resides. This will be near a school, thus the clientele is guaranteed. With this loan, she wants to stock up on inventory items. Currently her store is empty, so she chose to be photographed at another, similar store, located in the vicinity.

When the loan officer told her that she needed to be photographed so that Kiva lenders would see her, she said, laughing: “I want to be photographed in a store that is already established, because that brings good luck according to some superstitions in our region.” Tereze is a married mother of four children.
