Finah's story

Thanks to a prior Kiva loan, Finah has experienced a significant growth in the size and quality of her business. She was able to add more stock. which led to an increase in sales and profit. Finah uses the extra profit she makes to pay school fees for her child, feed herself and family, and repay the loan.

Having paid the loan successfully, Finah is requesting a new loan for 5,000,000 Leones, which she will use to further expand her business by buying more cosmetics to add to her current stock.
