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

A loan helped to buy tables, chairs, and ingredients for cooking the restaurant's BBQ.

Kanda's story

Kanda lives with her son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren in a rural area of northeast Thailand. Her family earns its main income from running a barbecue (BBQ) restaurant.

Unfortunately, during this year the COVID-19 pandemic hit, so Kanda had to close the restaurant for a few months. Presently, though, the situation has eased up somewhat, and she has reopened it once again for a month.

However, Kanda really needs some money to operate the business, so she applied for a Kiva loan to buy more tables, chairs, and ingredients for cooking BBQ. The loan will be very helpful for her in recovering from this difficult situation, and more importantly, the income from the business will be used to help take care of her grandchildren.
