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

A loan helped to purchase a car and start serving tourists.

Pikria's story

Pikria is 40 years old, married, and a mother of 3 sons. She lives with her husband and parents-in-law. In addition to her job as a mother, Pikria leads her own tourism business. She rents rooms seasonally to tourists and provides them with comfortable living conditions.

Because the number of tourists is increasing each year, Pikria has decided to generate additional income from her tourism business by purchasing a car. Her husband will be the driver and will serve and transport the guests to different locations.

This start-up loan offers Pikria a good chance to earn additional income and improve her family's living conditions in the future.
