Benewende Apolline's story

Benewende Apolline is 27 years old. She is the mother of 2 children of whom 1 goes to school. She has a business as an at-home tailer which she couples with the sale of pagnes [traditional cloth]. She has carried on this business for more than 10 years.

She is on her sixth loan with IMF YIKRI and she repaid her first Kiva loan without difficulty. She is asking for a loan to buy a sewing machine, 10 lengths of pagnes, some fabric and some trimmings to respond to the needs of her customers. She plans to use her profits to reinvest in her business and to save to improve the living conditions of her family. Finally, she thanks the Kiva lenders.
