Maria's story

Maria is modest, hardworking, 25 years old, and married.

Maria has amazing skill and experiences with East Timor traditional woven cloths called tais, and she makes a living from it. Her weaving shop, which she has been running for many years now, is so well located where it is easy to find, and many people come to buy her weaving every day.

Running the business has made Maria become independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's everyday needs.

She would like a loan of $1,000 through KIF to help improve her weaving shop. She plans to use this loan to buy additional stuff, like different colors of yarn and/or warp thread.

Maria hopes to expand the size of her business in the future, and she wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
