Hellen'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.

Hellen's story

Hellen is a 32-year-old married woman with four children, three of whom attend school.

She is a tailor and also sells clothing. She is able to generate income to provide basic needs for her children.

Her sewing machine is old and it breaks down every time
she uses it, making the cost of repairs too high. and this affects her sales. Hellen would like to borrow money from VisionFund to buy a new sewing machine. This will enable her to increase her sales and provide better basic needs for her family, such as clothing.

Her major challenge is low prices for clothing which keeps her income low.

Hellen sends appreciation to VisionFund and Kiva for the financial support.
