Maria's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy inventory for her kiosk, i.e., items such as soft drinks, hard drinks, body lotion and biscuits.
Maria is 39 years old, and she is married. She has a sales kiosk, to generate income for her family. She has been thinking about how to run a big business, but she does not have enough working capital. She felt better when she applied for her first loan, and now she is applying for her second loan of $1,000. She will use the loan to buy some additional supplies to keep in her store, such as soft drinks, hard drinks, body lotion and biscuits. She is happy with TRM (Tuba Rai Metin), which offers loans to poor people.
