Kilioni's story

Kilioni (59) is as motivated as ever to continue running her canteen in Natadradave. Throughout her 12 months of business, she has made excellent progress and is now looking for a loan that will help her improve her business and standard of living. Maria plans to use the loaned money to obtain a proper storage cabinet, a scale, packaging materials, and more varieties of stock for her business. She also intends to add frozen foods to her stock as this will draw her customers' attention. She understands the secret to her success and is ready to continue serving the people of her community while making ends meet within her household.
