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

A loan helped to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business.

Goreti's story

Goreti is 29 years old and married. She is an enterprising young woman with lots of knowledge and experience selling second-hand clothing (inside the bag in front of her is second-hand clothing).

Since she first started the business, she has been at a local market, considered to be a very good place to do this type of business, since lots of people always come around to the market looking for second-hand clothing to buy.

Running her business has made Goreti independent, because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family. She previously borrowed and repaid all of her loan and now would like a loan of $1,500 USD through KIF to help improve her used clothing business. She plans to use this loan to buy more second-hand clothing for her clothing business. Goreti hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank all the lenders for the opportunity.
