but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy more bananas and plantains to sell.

Lorpu attended school up to 9th grade. She has a business selling fruits such as bananas, plantains, etc. For the past 15 years, she has been operating her business. She sells 6 days a week and 11 hours per day. She is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more bananas and plantains to sell in order to generate greater income.
