Total loan: $1,000


Ainaro, Ainaro, Timor-Leste / Clothing

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

A loan helped to buy additional second-hand clothing to re-sell in her own shop.

Santina's story

Santina is married, and she is a businesswoman, as well as being the mother of four children. She has been involved in business activities for many years now.

Santina started her business with her own working capital. She has a clothing store and has previously borrowed and repaid all of her loan on time. (This is her first loan on Kiva's website). Now, she is requesting another loan of 1,000 USD from KIF to buy additional second-hand clothing to re-sell at her own shop.

Santina is happy because, with the loan from KIF, she can build her business in the future, and her income can be increased.
