A loan of $1,400 helped to buy clothing.


Bintu's story

This is 36-year-old Bintu. She is married and has four children aged 17, 14, 10 and 7. She has two additional dependents, who live with her for schooling. In 2001, Bintu established her clothing and textile business. She began her business just to generate enough funds to support her children’s education. Her business is located in the city center and her main customers are both men and women. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 540,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of SLL 6,000,000. Bintu has already received and successfully repaid one loan, and now requires a new loan in order to buy ladies trousers for SLL 1,500,000, suitcases for SLL 1,000,000 and napkins for SLL 500,000. She hopes that this loan will increase her stock level. In the future, Bintu plans to buy more stock for her shop and to educate her kids. She appreciates the gesture she is receiving from Kiva. She thanks you for your support.
