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

A loan helped to buy more secondhand curtains to sell.

Benter's story

Benter is a respectable and humble widow who is raising three children by herself. One child is now grown, so she looks after the rest with the help of the income she earns from her business of selling secondhand curtains. She obtains her stock from local suppliers, which helps their businesses as well. Running her own business is not always easy and she sometimes finds herself strained for capital to support her business since there are other competing needs. For this reason, she is kindly requesting a loan to boost her stock in order to improve her sales.

Part of her profits will be used to settle the loan and the rest will be saved, reinvested, and used to support her family. Her dream is to expand her shop and begin selling new products in the hopes of bringing in more customers to her business.
