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

A loan helped to purchase building materials (cement, cinder blocks, sand, etc).

Vilma's story

Vilma is a 43-year-old merchant and mother of two. She started her grocery store business fourteen years ago with a lot of effort. She used her savings to establish her business, and it has been her main source of income ever since. Vilma also has a coffee farm.

Vilma is applying for a loan from Fundenuse with funding from Kiva for water and sanitation. She has a washstand for water storage, but it is in poor condition because it had a burst and the water leaks. Vilma will invest in reconstructing the water storage washstand.

Her next goal is to improve her coffee farm for better income, and her other future plans are to invest more in her grocery store and improve her house.
