Benkadi 02 Group's story

Benkadi 2 has just finished its first Kiva loan. Repayments were made regularly. Bintou, the group representative, thanks all the Kiva staff and lenders for their support. With the loan, Bintou was able to buy bags of bissap [dried hibiscus flowers], to make juice drinks to sell. She made a profit that allowed her to pay her electricity bill, buy clothes for her children, take care of some family expenses, and especially to build her business. Awa is replacing Bintou as the group representative. Awa needs another loan to continue her regular business selling soap. She wants to stock boxes of soap to satisfy her customers in order to have good sales numbers and thrive further.
