A loan helped to purchase 'pagnes' cloth outfits to sell.

Songnaaba Group's story

Songnaaba just completed its first Kiva loan. The repayments were made normally. Edwige, the representative member, says thank you to all the Kiva personnel and lenders for the support. With this loan, she was able to buy 10 outfits made of 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) to sell. She had a profit enabling her to buy clothing for her children, to cover a few expenses for her family, and in particular to increase her business.

Edwige still has need of loans to continue her business selling clothing. She wants to purchase large amounts of condiments to stock up and sell later. From her sales, the profits will enable her to open a family savings account for the sake of her children.
