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

A loan helped to purchase more and larger chafing dishes, pots, a new 6-burner gas stove and ice-box.

Litea's story

Litea's catering business has grown to become a successful one after she started it with a loan granted by previous lenders through Kiva. She has managed to make a name for herself and her business and it has gained quite the popularity.

The popularity has increased the demand of her services but unfortunately for her, she does not have enough catering equipment to cater for large orders and for her travelling expenses as the orders are also coming in many places which require travelling by boat or plane.

Litea kindly requests another loan to expand her business. She firstly wants to purchase more catering items like larger chafing dishes, larger and pots, a new 6-burner gas stove, a larger ice-box and also money to pay for her travelling expenses. With these, she can finally cater for larger functions and therefore earn more for her family, especially for her children.
