Marius's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped to buy various types of cell phones and accessories, such as phone cards, cables, and headphones.


Marius's story

Marius wants to heartily thank Kiva's lenders for his previous loan. Thanks to this loan, he was able to increase the number of cell phones and accessories he sells to clients.

With the income he earned, he was able to buy a parcel of land in the country that he'll eventually use to raise broiler chickens.

To meet his clients' needs, Marius renewed his loan to buy more cell phones and accessories, such as extra headphones, cables, and chargers.

His goal for the future is to open another point of sale for cell phones and accessories.
