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

A loan helped to buy wholesale supplies to make and sell pizza.

Dúo Maranatha Group's story

Dorcas Nineth is the representative of the group. She is the proprietor of a pizzeria and cafeteria. She is an enterprising and successful woman. Before opening her business, she took courses in cooking, beverages, and pizza-making. Now she has put all that she learned into practice in her business, and it is going very well. With the previous loan, she bought what she planned and her income improved. The business has benefitted her family; it is a family business in which her three children and her husband are involved. They earn for their schooling, food, and clothing.

She feels very blessed by God and by the investors of Kiva and FAPE. She has been punctual with her payments, and in the midst of the pandemic, she has strived to keep up to date with payments. She is requesting the loan because she needs to buy the ingredients wholesale to make pizzas, because she will get better prices.
