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

A loan helped to bolster her business capacity (selling juice drinks), earn more, and meet family needs.

Laban Group's story

The group named “Laban” just finished its first Kiva loan. The repayments were made normally. Fatoumat, the representative member, says thank you to all Kiva lenders for the support. With ACFIME loans, she was able to pay for some sugar and the ingredients for the juice drinks she sells. She had a profit enabling her to pay her children’s school fees, help cover family expenses, and increase her business in particular. Fatoumat still has need of loans to continue in her work selling juice drinks.
