A loan helped to buy more shoes from Togo to sell.

David's story

David is a 41-year-old entrepreneur who is married and has two children, ages, 13 and 11 years.

David sells shoes near the Mamprobi bus station at Kaneshie. He has been in business for the past five years. David dreams of importing shoes directly from China and owning his own shop.

He will use the loan to buy more shoes from Togo to sell. He believes that, with the loan, he will make more sales to fully complete his building project, finance his children's education and increase his working capital.

Thank you to Kiva lenders for supporting David’s business!
