A loan of $500 helped to buy more mangoes under contract, for resale after the harvest.

Touch's story

Touch (in the photo) and her husband, Hay, are wedding caterers. In addition, they supplement their income with a new fruit selling business. They buy mangoes from her fellow villagers under contract. This means that they pay money before the harvesting season and then they collect mangoes to sell.

Touch had asked and used her previous loan to assist in her wedding catering business by buying food on credit, and then after the wedding she will reimburse the food venders (www.kiva.org/lend/404775).

She is now applying for second Kiva loan of $500 to buy more mangoes under contract for resale.
