This man sells building materials. Now he is requesting a loan of 2000 AZN to increase the variety of building materials that he sells. He has a lot of clients, and he does not want to loose them. “I am very thankfull to Kiva that they increased the loan size from $1200 to $3000. For a long time I was waiting for the day when Kiva would increase the loan size. It is the best news for me."
