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

A loan helped to buy additional stock for her general store and a refrigerator to keep drinks cold for customers.

Maria's story

Maria is 35 years old and married with 3 children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2016; people visit the kiosk to buy goods. Running her business has made Maria independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She would like a loan of $1,000 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as noodles, body lotion, milk, soda, beer, water, cigarettes, and coffee. She would also like to buy a refrigerator to keep drinks cold.

Maria hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
