Raymond's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy lumber for making furniture and some supplies, such as fabrics, nails, etc.

Raymond's story

Raymond is very happy, since he was able to use the previous loan to purchase the basic supplies necessary for producing furniture. He is thankful to KIVA lenders for their financial support and trust.

So he has caught up to fulfilling the special orders for furniture, and sales keeping rising. The earnings have enabled him to meet the financial needs of his children and to build up some savings.

To satisfy his loyal customers further and to meet customer demands on a timely basis, he has asked for a new loan to stock up on enough lumber and the equipment necessary for making furniture. His dream is to become financially independent later on.
