Helena's story

Helena is 36 years old and married with 2 children. She has a kiosk that she started in 2019, where many people come to buy goods every day. Running her business has made Helena independent because she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family.

She would like a loan of $700 from KIF to help improve her kiosk. She plans to use this loan to buy additional supplies such as biscuits, noodles, sugar and coffee. She would also like to buy a refrigerator to keep drinks cold. Helena hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity. Her husband is a farmer.
