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

A loan helped to purchase an ice-box, juice ingredients and equipment.

Katarina's story

Katarina's husband is a handy man who works on short, contractual basis and earns the bare minimum only when there is an opportunity available. These opportunities don't always come so other times Katarina has to go and look for employment in people's houses and help them with chores so that she is able to put food on the table for her three children.

Katarina's family lives near a large ground which hosts different sporting events every weekend, and she has seen this as an opportunity to make an income. For the past few months, she has been mixing fruit juice which she sells to spectators and athletes. With the income earned, she has been able to pay for their utility bills and also feed her family and buy proper shoes and bags for her children.

Katarina hopes to own an ice box so she can properly mix and store the juice she makes and continue to serve them cold to her customers as they usually prefer it that way. She also hopes to buy materials to make ice-blocks and sell them on the weekend too as she has also noticed a large demand from children that attend the sporting events during the weekends.
