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


A loan helped to purchase more fabric and colored thread to develop her business and increase her income.


Maisara's story

Maisara is a kind and polite 43-year-old woman. She is unmarried and lives with her parent.

For the past 20 years, she has been embroidering traditional dresses for women. Maisara is grateful to her mother, who taught her this activity.

Now she wants to apply for a loan to purchase more fabric and colored thread to develop her business and increase her income. Also, she intends to use a part of her loan to buy a modern sewing machine.

Maisara is asking for a loan for the first time with Kiva’s partner IMON and hopes to have your support.
