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

A loan helped to once again be able to cook and serve native delicacies for the stall owners ordering from her.

Lolita's story

Lolita is thankful for the previous loan extended to her by Kiva and Kiva lenders. Through the loan, she was able to increase her food production and sales. Lolita has paid her loan diligently.

However, with the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine, Lolita has used up a considerable amount of her loan capital to stock up on food for her family. This has been also the situation for the stall owners she distributed her goods to. The majority of them had been asking her to deliver, to cater to buyers placing orders online.

She is requesting a loan of 17,000 PHP to once again be able to cook and serve native delicacies for stall owners ordering from her. Lolita hopes to continue doing business despite the Covid-19 crisis, as well as to be able to collect from stall owners who owe her.

Note: The borrower's photo was taken from her home, where she is allowed not to wear a face mask as required by the national government for sellers.
