What is the purpose of this loan?
This loan will significantly help in settling the last lap of the import process. My material is already en route and is expected to reach here by mid of September 2016. I need the loan to clear the custom formalities, import duties, and local transportation to my storage. The consignment is worth $50,000 and I need about 20% of that to help with the above, import duties itself being @ 17%~
The loan will help my current cash crunch situation and I will not have to incur interest/fees while borrowing from Kiva. Once I start selling I can recycle the loan towards marketing and business promotions to further boost my social presence / have a robust website etc.
