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


A loan helped to buy clothes such as long pants, shorts, and long and short-sleeved shirts.


Francelina's story

Francelina is 45 years old and married with 3 children. She has a clothing business that she started in 2015, where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made Francelina independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help to support her family.

She would like a loan of $500 from KIF to help improve her clothing business. She plans to use this loan to buy clothes such as long pants, shorts, and long and short-sleeved shirts.

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