A loan helped to renovate her restaurant and buy new plates.


Elif's story

Elif is married and has one child. Six years ago she opened a tiny restaurant and served liver and home-cooked foods. Since then she has increased the number of her customers, and bought and expanded into the store next to hers.

Elif has taken out and successfully repaid two prior loans through Kiva's field partner Maya. She has now applied for a 1,600 TRY loan through Kiva's field partner Maya to renovate her restaurant and buy new plates. In the future she, as a woman chef, wants to be a brand in leaf-thin, fried liver, which is a traditional dish of nortwest Turkey.

Translated from Turkish by the Maya staff
Elif hanım evli ve bir çocuk annesi. 6 yıl önce çok küçük bir dükkân da ciğer ve ev yemekleri üstüne bir lokanta açtı. 6 yıl içinde hem müşteri çevresini artırdı hem de yanında ki ve arkasındaki dükkanları alarak dükkanını genişletti. Mayadan 3. kredisini kullanan Elif Hanım bu krediler ile lokantasını tadilat yaptırdı ve tabaklarını yeniledi. Elif hanım gelecekte yaprak ciğerinde kadın usta olarak marka olmak istiyor.
