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

A loan helped invest in the modernization (renovation of restaurant) and the acquisition of equipment for fast food.

Aida's story

Aida is a restaurateur by trade. She has 10 years of experience in this domain. But today, the restaurant sector is subject to rigorous rules of modernization and hygiene.

Until now, Aida's restaurant is very well known by customers to be lacking in terms of modernization. Aida wishes to have a modern restaurant but she is always confronted by the problem of financing her project.

Situated in a strategic zone, Aida's restaurant has a good crowd, but she never stops receiving customer suggestions to modernize the restaurant.

In addition, she wants to develop a new "fast food" offer by hiring a professional caterer. This new direction requires a large investment in equipment and in organization.

Aida is requesting a Kiva loan with Fansoto to invest in the modernization (renovation of restaurant) and in acquiring equipment for fast food.

With the profit from the business, Aida will be able to hire young girls part-time to reinforce her staff in order to increase her production capacity, to improve the quality of service, and to reduce customers' wait time. As such, she will be able to gain market share, to establish leadership in her environment, and to increase her profit.
