Mrs. Yawa Z., 32, is mother of three children. Her principle business activity is selling basic foodstuffs and charcoal. This enterprise requires a big input of capital because supplies of charcoal must be bought far from the coastal area where she lives.

In order to make her business viable, Yawa has to be able to buy in bulk each time she goes to replenish her supply of charcoal. This of course necessitates a ready supply of cash. For this reason, Yawa is requesting a loan of US$ 800. She has always managed to repay prior loans in a timely fashion. This loan will be a supplementary resource that will allow her to get the most out of her micro-business.

Translated from French by Teresa Kramer, Kiva volunteer

Agée de 32 ans, Madame Z. Yawa est mère de trois (3) enfants. Son activité principale est le commerce des produits vivriers et du charbon. Ce commerce demande beaucoup de fonds car les zones d’approvisionnement sont bien éloignées de la Région Maritime où elle habite.

Pour rentabiliser cette activité, il faut acheter beaucoup de produits lors d’un déplacement. Ceci exigerait la disponibilité de beaucoup d’argent. C’est pour cela qu’elle sollicite $800. Elle a toujours fait ses preuves en remboursant ses crédits antérieurs sans incident. Ce crédit sera pour elle une ressource supplémentaire afin de mieux rentabiliser son commerce.
