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

A loan helped to buy water, breads, and noodles to sell in the store.

Maria's story

Maria is 52 years old and married, with three children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2018 where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made Maria independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She would like a loan of $1000 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as water, breads, and noodles.

Maria hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity. And her husband is farming.
