A loan of $375 helped to buy merchandise for her grocery business.


Teofila Marina's story

Teofila is a very hard-working woman, who provides for her family with her small business selling groceries, drinks and vegetables. She puts a lot of effort into her business, working at it for about ten hours each day. Teofila thinks that she does well because she treats her customers with kindness.

Teofila is grateful to Kiva lenders for the help that they give her. She will use this loan to buy merchandise for her grocery business and to make some improvements to her home. Teofila says that she will continue striving to make her greatest dream a reality, which is to have her own mini-market.
