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

A loan helped to buy rice, noodles, canned foods, soaps, washing pastes, and steel wool for her general store business.

Maritina's story

Maritina wants to thank her Kiva lenders for their support with her previous loan. She was able to purchase materials for her bakery business.

To earn additional income she also runs a small general store business selling food items such as rice, noodles, biscuits, canned foods, and household items such as soaps, washing pastes, and steel wool.

Maritina wants to increase her stock and thus took a loan from SPBD to pay for additional food and household items to sell.

She plans to continue to use her profits to meet her children’s school fees and pay back her loan.
