A loan of $3,875 helped a member to buy chairs, tables, etc.

Manos Unidas Group's story

Livana is 38 years old, married and the mother of four children. For 14 years she has been selling food from her home, both during the day and in the evening. Livana says that she has succeeded in gaining loyal customers, which has generated earnings for her so that she can cover her household expenses. In the future she would like to have a shop where she can sell her food and obtain better income.

She will use the loan granted to enlarge her home and buy chairs, tables, etc. This way she will be able to better serve her customers and be able to get ahead in life.

At the same time, Livana and all of the members are grateful to Kiva. Livana is the fourth person from the right and can be seen wearing her black T-shirt.

She says goodbye with the promise that she will fulfill all the goals she has set for herself.
