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

A loan helped to buy raw materials for her craft business and help with her family's daily needs.

Maria's story

Maria is a 26-year-old single mother to her three kids. She and her kids live at her sister's house. She and her sister run a craft business where they make kiekie and sell them to earn money for their living.

They make kiekie from raw materials of nature such as hibiscus and coconut materials. The price of each kiekie depends on the size and the materials it's made from. Kiekie that are made from any coconut materials are more expensive for it consumes more time and more focus is needed.

With this loan, Maria will be able to buy raw materials for her business and also use some of the money to help with their living. She wanted her children not to feel fatherless and that is why she is doing her best at her business.
