default Our Kiva Loans - updates

Post by Adrian on 20th July 2010, 10:10 pm

So far we have made loans to

>> Raima Jusupova's Group <<

Raima Jusupova is the leader of this group. She is fifty-two years old.
Raima and her husband raised two children. The oldest son is
twenty-eight, and the daughter is twenty years old. Raima's husband
works as manager of Traffic Operation Company, and Raima is involved in
animal husbandry and selling milk. Previously, she was a homemaker and
stayed home, however, one day they were given a cow as a gift for their
son's wedding. Since then, Raima started to take care of livestock.
Ten years have passed since then, and thanks to joint efforts of Raima
and her husband, they were able to repair their home, buy a refrigerator
and marry off their daughter. Currently, Raima earns close to three
thousand som monthly from sales of milk. She wants to increase her
income. She hopes to obtain a loan for this purpose and buy sheep for
fattening. Raima is confident in her decision to expand her business
and dreams of building a house for her son in the future.

Raima's group partners are:

Busarahan Haidarova is fifty-two years old. She grows cotton. Her
daughter helps her in this difficult business. One of her sons works in
Russia, another is a salesperson at a store, and the youngest son goes
to school. Busarahan's husband works as a construction worker. She
requested this loan because she needs to buy mineral fertilizers.

Gulsorahon Muminova is forty-four years old. Her husband had to go to
Russia for work. Gulsorahon stayed home with three children. She is
involved in growing cotton and other agricultural crops. She hopes to
obtain this loan in order to buy mineral fertilizers.

Venera Halikova is only eighteen years old. She is not yet married.
Venera is involved in business, specifically reselling sheep. Besides
this, she has permanent job at a cafeteria. Venera decided to request
this loan because she plans to buy sheep for breeding.

Our second loan

>> Felipa Inting from the Phillipines <<

Felipa Inting is from the village of Jampason, Jasaan, Misamis Oriental.
She is 68 years old. Felipa is married and has 3 adult-aged children.
To make a living, Felipa owns & operates a business venture in the
retail sector running a sari-sari (variety) retail shop. While not the
only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the
business comes primarily from buying and selling both food & daily
use products and also retailing rice in kilo in the local community.
Felipa has been engaged in her business for over 7 years and earns
approximately 8500 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2003, Felipa joined HSPFI to gain access to financial services to
help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business
activities. Felipa has successfully repaid a previous loan of 8000 PHP
from HSPFI. This previous loan was used to to purchase additional
products to sell. Felipa is requesting a new loan of 10000 PHP which
will be used to purchase additional inventory & working capital.
This loan will be the 4th loan taken out by Felipa from HSPFI. She plans
to use the additional revenue generated from the business to
improve/expand the borrower's business.

Our third loan >>> Ablavi Djikpo lives in Togo <<<

Ms. Djikpo is widowed with two dependent children. She is a seamstress
and makes clothing from traditional cloth and other material for her
customers. She has run out of material needed for her sewing business,
and so for the second time she is asking for a loan from WAGES to buy
eight meters of material, 106 pieces of gimp [coarse lace], five boxes
of buttons, 190 spools of sewing thread, and other items.

Our fourth loan >>> Muhsen Abu Salem lives in Palestine <<<

Muhsen Abu Salem is a 26-year-old man from Jabalia, a city in the Gaza
Strip. Muhsen took barber's training courses and used the old shop his
father owned to start a barber shop. He bought all of the tools he
needed by using the savings from his previous job and with the help of
his family.

Muhsen has been in business for three years now. He needed new chairs
because the old ones were second-hand chairs in bad condition. Muhsen
came to FATEN, took a $1,500 loan, and bought new chairs, like the one
you see in the picture that shows Muhsen at work.

Muhsen has established a good reputation that has made many customers want to come to his salon.

A big thank you to all our donors, I would like to encourage anyone who wishes to support the forum that they can donate any amount (large or small) via the Paypal donate button at the top left of this page. All money donated sits in the Homemade Life Paypal account which has no bank account affiliated to it (so no withdrawals can be made) and is used purely to fund micro loans via KIVA.

I am happy to make available screen caps of the paypal account to the forum to ensure complete transparency. $1 to us is a cup of coffee - many $1s will make a massive difference to the lives of hard working folk who really do need our help to better their lives.
