A loan of $2,000 helped to start up a grocery store.

Diana's story

Diana, 29, is single and lives with her parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. Diana’s sister-in-law works as a cook at a hotel and gets a monthly salary. The family rents the first floor of their house and generates a small-sized income.

In order to be employed and earn funds, Diana decided to start up a grocery store near her house but found she didn’t have enough money to do so. Unfortunately, Diana was unable to obtain a loan from existing financial institutions, as they required business experience and stable income as a precondition to a loan. But Diana has now received her loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and Credo. This start-up loan program provides start-up and re-startup loans with easy terms to the vulnerable poor who do not have access to credit products. With a loan of 2,000 USD Diana will purchase stock of basic groceries to start a store. She will work as a salesperson herself and serve her clients in a friendly way.

Diana is very determined young lady who wishes to help her family members. She hopes for your generosity.
