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

A loan helped to buy raw materials for her arts and crafts business and also extra big pots.

Makarita's story

To serve the many tourist visitors to her village, Makarita, 56, runs a handicraft stall selling trinkets and souvenirs. She knows the value of education and plans to keep her three high-schoolers at school for as long as possible.

Makarita is seeking a loan to maintain – and hopefully expand – her stall. In addition to this, she also rents out big cooking pots for special occasions - deaths, weddings, birthdays, etc. With a better retail outlet, she hopes to boost her sales so that she can pay for her children’s schooling and also uphold her family's welfare.
