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

A loan helped to purchase equipment to make traditional salt.

Flaviano's story

Flaviano is 32 years old and married. He has two children and lives with his family in Bobonaro municipality. For four years, he has been earning a living by making and selling traditional East Timorese salt (the white material in the plastic bags behind him is salt that is ready to sell). He has set up the business close to his house.

He wants to increase the size of his business and has decided to request a loan from Kiva's field partner KIF in the amount of 1000 USD to purchase equipment to make traditional salt. With the loan, he hopes to produce salt on a larger scale and sell it to his customers.

His goals are to grow his business, satisfy his customers, and give his family a better quality of life.
