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

A loan helped to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business.

Filomena's story

This is Filomena, a modest and an enterprising 40 years old married woman and a mother of six children who has lots of knowledge and experience selling second-hand clothing (all the bags behind her are full of cloths that ready to sell).

She has been doing the business since 2018. It is located at a local market and it is considered to be a very good place to do this type of business, due to lots of people who always come around to the market looking for second-hand clothing to buy.

Running the business has made Filomena become more independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's everyday income.

She would like a loan of $500 USD through KIF to help improve her used clothing business. She plans to use this loan to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business.

Filomena hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank to all the lenders for the opportunity.
