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

A loan helped to purchase school books, bags and other equipment for her children.

Maria's story

Maria is a 44-year-old married mother of four. She's a Timorese woman who lives in Manufahi municipality with her family to provide them with a better living. She is a teacher at one of the government schools in her village. Providing her children (one of whom in a white uniform stands by her side) with a proper education is a priority for her.

For this reason, she's applying for a loan from Kiva's field partner, Kaebauk, in order to buy school equipment for her children.

Maria wishes her children a bright future full of happiness and success.
