Djiguène Bakhna 33 Group's story

Djiguène Bakhna 33 Group is part of the Pout Women network, which signed a convention with Kiva's partner, UIMCEC. The group is made up of two women and three men who became acquainted through neighborhood ties. They get together at the end of every month. They chose Ms. Khadayssa as their president.

Ms. Khadayssa is married and the mother of a family. Her business consists in selling cosmetics at a local market, where she opened a small shop 4 years ago. She's seeking her sixth loan from IMCEC. The loan amounts to twice the previous one, and she wants to use it to diversify her stock. She will buy beauty creams, perfumes, soaps, fabrics, shoes, body milk, etc.

Ms. Khadayssa has five years of experience in this business. She starts her workday at 8 a.m. and finishes at 6 p.m. She has no expenses to cover, and her business profits will enable her to improve her family's nutrition and its standard of living.
