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

A loan helped to buy a varied selection of drinks to sell.

Bless's story

Bless lives and works in Suhum. She is married with three lovely children. Three years ago, Bless opened a shop to sell bottled water and drinks in her community. This initiative came to light after she observed people had to travel long distances to buy drinks and water for social events such as marriage, child-naming ceremonies and funerals. The business is picking up fast, but she has realized she needs more capital to increase her stock.

She has thus approached Advans for a loan to help her buy a varied stock of the water and drinks for her shop. With the increase in stock, Bless will be able to attract more customers to her shop. She intends to plough her profits back into the business. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva lenders for supporting her.
