Kafakh Group's story


We have finished reimbursing the first loan that you gave us. We are very pleased about that and have come to ask you to renew the loan. With the sum you loaned us, we managed to work the whole year and we were able to pay our children's school fees.

As you know, our eco-village is off in the country and hard to reach. Thanks to the Kiva loan we were able to face our children's school year with serenity and less anguish. The profit that we made from our former business sustained us.

Although we did not manage to put by any savings, we were at least able to cater for the basic needs of our families. Thus, we intend to take up a business selling different products that are produced here and sell the utensils that the inhabitants need.
