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

A loan helped to have general working capital to rebuild her spray rig, purchase new equipment, and advertise.

Donna's story

Donna opened her family-run business, C D Painting, in 2009. She operates it with the help of her three sons. She has enjoyed a good amount of success in the painting business, though her finances took a dive as she went through a difficult divorce last year.

But that didn’t get Donna down. Business is on the upswing with a new apartment complex client, and she believes that she is poised to take on more of this type of client.

Donna wants to update her equipment so that she can secure more of these bigger clients in the future. The Kiva loan will go towards general working capital, rebuilding her spray rig, purchasing new equipment, and advertising.
