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

A loan helped to buy shoes in bulk for the winter season.

Hicran's story

Hicran is married and has two children. She sells shoes, which she buys in bulk out of the city, in local bazaars.

Hicran requested her fifth loan from Maya, which she will use to buy bulks of shoes, boots, and slippers. She wants to increase her sales and her income.
