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

A loan helped to buy bread and water.

Claudina's story

Claudina is 48 years old, married, and has 2 children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2017, where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made Claudina independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help to support her family.

She would like a loan of $1500 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy bread and water. Claudina hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
