Sandra's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy Chinese brands of ladies bags.

Sandra's story

Sandra is very happy because with the previous loan, she was able to buy an additional variety of Chinese bags. She is very thankful to Kiva lenders for their trust and their financial support.

Her sales are doing well, and the work is creating more earnings that she used to buy a kitchen table and to cover the household expenses (school fees, rent, electricity).

In order to further develop her business and to offer a larger choice of products to her customers, this brave mother has requested another loan to increase her rolling funds. So that she can buy an additional variety of ladies bags of Chinese brands.

In short, Sandra wishes to have her own house in order to avoid paying rent and to offer a better quality of life for her family.
