We know the 6 beneficiaries we added to our loan program in the last 2 years are safe and well supported in the Aurik program. We already see how these small businesses are growing when we interact with their management teams during the year. They can now better articulate their needs and requirements, and sell their businesses more effectively to Kimberley Clark.Kimberly Clark
