Marcelina's story

Marcelina is a simple and diligent 20-year-old woman who has a strong desire to get one step ahead. She has a food stall business in which she serves fresh, local grilled fish, BBQ chicken and ketupat (cooked rice covered with coconut leaves). She has had this business for many years now.

Marcelina's stall business is located at a very good place just by the main road and many people come to eat at her place every day. Running the business has made Marcelina independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She would like a loan of US$1,500 through KIF to help improve her business. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as wood, chickens, fresh fish and other items to sell at her small food stall. Marcelina hopes to run a bigger business in the future as the result of the investment and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
