Odette's story

Odette is one of Zafen's successful borrowers. She made great progress with the loan she received through Kiva. Odette, age 55, has opened a new branch where she hired at least six people to sew for her. Furthermore, she offered rental dresses for bridesmaids.

As Odette is developing, she needs more capital that she cannot find elsewhere. The credit sector has no flexibility for entrepreneurs in the textile sector. Therefore, a new loan will allow Odette to buy rare fabrics and to retail to small workers at the best price. Unsurprisingly, this loan will create at least six permanent jobs.
