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

A loan helped to reinforce her business capacities (condiments and onions) to make a profit and take care of her children.

Yamwaya Group's story

Yamwaya has just finished her Kiva loan. She made the repayments normally. Rasmata, the leading member, thanks all the Kiva personnel and lenders for their support. With the loan, Rasmata was able to pay for eggs and onions for resale. She made a profit which enabled her to pay the school fees for her children, to make some purchases for the family, and above all, to increase her activity. Rasmata continues to need loans to carry on her activity selling onions and condiments. After her sales, her profit will help her feel even better.
