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

A loan helped to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business.

Marina's story

This is Marina, a modest and an enterprising 21 year old woman who has lots knowledge and experiences selling second-hand clothing. Marina has been doing the business since 2014, located at a local market. It is considered to be a very good place to do this type of business, due to lots of people who always come around to the market looking for second-hand clothing to buy.

Running the business has made Marina become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's every day income.

She would like a loan of 1200 USD through KIF to help improve her used clothing business. She plans to use this loan to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business.

Marina hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank to all the lenders for the opportunity.
