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 52-year-old woman. She is married and has a son.

For the past 10 years, she has been embroidering traditional dresses for women. Maisara is grateful to her mother who taught her this activity.

Now Maisara wants to apply for a loan to purchase more fabric and colored thread to develop her business and increase her income.

She is a returning borrower and has positive credit history. This will be her ninth loan from Kiva’s field partner, IMON.

She hopes to have your support.
