Graciana's story

Graciana is a 50-year-old married woman residing in the Ainaro municipality. She has a household of four.

She is involved in the services sector and makes men's and women's suits according to the demands of her customers. She is looking to purchase a sewing machine, more stock of clothes, yarns, and other supplies to expand her business.

She was previously borrowed and re-payed her loan with a good habit of on-time; now she would like a loan of $1,500 from Kiva field partner Kaebauk (KIF). She would like to thank all of her lenders for helping her.
