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

A loan helped to buy a sewing machine.

Emma's story

Emma is a 24-year-old female, married with 4 children who are all school going.

She is a tailor and also a farmer growing maize, beans and cassava for home consumption.

Her tailoring job gives her income to help paying school fees for her children and also provide other basic needs for her family.

The sewing machine she is using currently is too old and always breaks down, makes her work so difficult and affects the quality of the clothes she makes.

She wants a loan from VisionFund to buy a new sewing machine since this will improve on the quality of the clothes she makes hence increase her sales.

Her major challenge is high cost of repairing the sewing machine she has right now and the low prices of the clothes.

She is greatly thankful to Kiva and VisionFund for supporting her and people within her community.
