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

A loan helped to purchase work clothing for her catering business, three rice cookers, and eight bags of high-quality rice.

Rosalie Brigitte's story

Rosalie is very thankful for Kiva lenders, because with the previous loan, she was able to purchase a display case. This equipment helped her improve the presentation of her products she offers to customers. She is very happy with it.

Thanks to her increased revenue, Rosalie is able to pay family expenses (rent, children's school fees) on time. To stand out from her competitors and meet her customers' needs, she renewed her loan, this time to purchase eight bags of high-quality rice, three rice cookers, and clothing for her catering business. Her goal is to further expand her business.
