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

A loan helped to buy beauty products to add to her salon.

Hellen's story

Hellen is a married woman with two children who are in school.

She operates a salon that helps her generate income to support her family. She also engages in farming, mainly growing simsim, which she sells to supplement her income.

Most of her customers no longer come to the salon due to its shortage of beauty products. She is therefore requesting a loan from VisionFund to buy more beauty products.

Hellen faces the challenge that beauty products are expensive, with the result that she earns low profits.

Hellen thanks Kiva and VisionFund for supporting her financially, which has enabled her to pay school fees for her children.
