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

A loan helped to buy stocks of drinks for sale.

Naomi's story

Naomi lives and works in Suhum. She is 39 years of age and married with three children.

A couple of years ago, Naomi opened a shop to sell bottled water and drinks in her community. This initiative came to light after she observed people had to travel long distances to buy drinks and water for social events such as marriage and child-naming ceremonies and funerals.

The business is picking up fast, but she has realized she needs more capital to increase her stocks. She has thus approached Advans for a loan to help her buy varied stocks of the water and drinks for her shop. With the increase in stock, Naomi will be able to attract more customers to her shop.

She wants to use the profits to expand the business. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva lenders for supporting her.
