A loan of $475 helped to order more drinks so he can increase his stock and earn more profits.

Adrian's story

Adrian is 36 years old and married, with two children. He completed high school in 1998 and obtained a diploma in teaching. He resigned as a teacher because the income was not enough to sustain him and his family.

He operates a grocery store and sells Coca-Cola products to customers in his hometown of Zimba. Adrian has been running his business for 11 years now. The income from this business is very important to him and his family, as it helps cover basic needs.

He enjoys running his business because it gives him the opportunity to interact with other business owners in his hometown and earn a decent living.

Adrian has applied for a Kiva loan to add to his drink stock. He will use the money to order more crates of soft drinks. This will improve his overall volume of soda, and he will be able to sell more product, therefore improving his profit margins.

He would like to thank Kiva and the Kiva lenders for the opportunity they have provided him to grow his business and improve his and his family's life.
