Sister
Mrs. Sister A. was born on July 20, 1962 in Vogan (P/V), Togo. Married and the mother of eight children, she lives with her husband who is a taxi driver. Mrs. Sister A.'s business is selling kindling. She buys it wholesale or else buys a tree trunk and has it split by specialists. This is a flourishing business, but because she lacks capital to invest in it, she is not always able to satisfy the needs of her clientele. She is asking for a Kiva loan of US$ 1000 which will allow her to have a consistant quantity of kindling on hand so that her customers will not have to be turned away.
