A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy products for her grocery store, such as rice, sugar, and legumes.


Karin Group's story

Bertha is 46 years old, married, and the mother of three children. She has had a small grocery shop for about eight years now. She has built a loyal customer base, which has helped her to earn enough money to cover her household expenses. In the future she would like to have her own retail space where she could sell her products and earn more income.

Bertha will invest this loan in the purchase of more products for her grocery store, such as rice, sugar, legumes, etc. This will let her continue to satisfy her customers' needs and get ahead in this way. Bertha and all of the group's members are very grateful to Kiva for the loan they have been granted and for the trust put in them.
