Wendyaye Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to expand her business capacity (rice, oil and condiments) in order to create profits and take care of her children.

Wendyaye Group's story

Wendyayé just completed their first Kiva loan. Repayments were done normally. Noelie, the group's representative, thanks all staff and Kiva lenders for their support. With this loan, Noelie was able to buy bags of rice and condiments to sell at her restaurant. She made profits which covered clothing for her children, a few family expenses and, above all, expansion of her business. Noelie needs additional loans to continue running her restaurant. She wants to remodel her restaurant to satisfy her customers, generate good revenue and to progress further.
