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

A loan helped to increase his stock of drinks and bottled water for sale.

Francis's story

Francis lives and works in Suhum. He is married, 41 years of age, and has four lovely children.

Four years ago, Francis opened a shop to sell bottled water and drinks in his community. This initiative came to him after he observed people had to travel long distances to buy drinks and water for social events such as marriage and child-naming ceremonies and funerals.

The business is picking up fast but he has realized he needs more capital to increase his stocks. He has thus approached Advans for a loan to help him buy a varied stocks of water and drinks for his shop. With the increase in stock, Francis will be able to attract more customers to his shop.

He intends to re-invest his profits in order to expand the business. He is grateful in advance to the generous Kiva lenders for supporting him. Thank you.
