A loan helped to buy ingredients for her juices and sell them.

Barakandi Group's story

Barakandi group has just repaid its Kiva loan. The repayments were made normally. Mariam, representative member, thanks all the personnel and lenders of Kiva for their support. With the loan, Mariam was able to pay for sugar, ingredients for her juices and sell them. She had a profit that allowed her to pay for clothes for her children, to make some expenses for her family and especially to grow her business. Mariam still needs loans to continue her juice sales business.
She wants to stock up on enough ingredients to satisfy her customers.
