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

A loan helped to buy more foodstuffs and utensils to boost her business.

Grace's story

Grace is a loving woman who is the single mother of four children and a grandmother who helps support her family by running a restaurant. This loan will allow her to buy foodstuffs and utensils for her restaurant, which will boost her income. Her business has been successful and today she employs one person who helps her with day-to-day activities.

Because this loan will boost her business she is very confident that she will be able to repay this loan. Her main challenge has been accessing capital but thanks to Kiva and its lenders businesswomen like her can access funding to grow their businesses. Her dream is to educate her children and have a successful future.
