Stella's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped buy equipment and grow my business.

Stella's story

I grew up in Nigeria where we are encouraged to be enterprising and industrious. Most people work hard to make a living and that entrepreneurial spirit has been very pivotal in the start and maintenance of my business. A very important cornerstone of my ability to continue despite the discouragement I faced when I invested everything in my business was my faith in God which helped me to have hope in Him when there is no hope. I have a ministry called “When There is No Hope” which caters to the downtown Los Angeles Homeless men and women. It is an inspirational ministry that encourage them to trust in God when all hope is lost. I do visitation and buy food, seasonal clothing and toiletries as a way to show them the love of God and to let them know that someone cares. So, when it came to my turn to lose hope and faith in my business, I found solace in God and our Lord Jesus Christ and applied the same things that I encouraged those men and women to do. I am hoping that God will use the caring spirit of the men and women at KIVA Loan to help my move my business to the next level.
