A loan helped to buy bread and biscuits.

Anita's story

Anita is 35 years old and married with 2 children. Her husband is a farmer. She has a kiosk that she started in 2017 where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made Anita independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

Anita would like a loan of $600 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as bread and biscuits.

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