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

A loan helped to buy cigarettes, eggs, noodles, sugar, coffee, fish, and slippers to sell in the store.

Teresa's story

Teresa is 44 years old and married, with four children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2016 where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made her independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She had previously borrowed and repaid all of her loans on time and now would like a loan of $1,200 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as cigarettes, eggs, noodles, sugar, coffee, fish, and slippers. She would also like to buy a refrigerator to keep drinks cold.

Teresa hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
