A loan helped to buy additional new personal care products and new clothes to stock her shop and get more customers.


Maria's story

Maria, aged 48, is a married businesswoman. She has a very good understanding and experience in her own retail business selling personal care products as well as selling new clothes. She has been running her business for many years now. Maria's shop is placed in a very good spot which is easy to find and many people come to buy her items every day. Running her business has made Maria independent as she can be responsible for herself and also help support her family's income.

Maria would like a loan of $1,500 from KIF to help improve her retail business. She plans to use this loan to buy more new personal care products and new clothes to increase her stock and get more consumers. This is her second loan as she has already repaid her first one.

Maria hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
