Ayaovi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy 5 lengths of 'pagne' cloth and 4 dozen hair extensions to resell.
Ayaovi, aged 31, is an unmarried woman who does commerce in hair extensions and in 'pagnes' [the colorful wax cloth of western Africa]. Twice a month, she orders her goods at the market to resell them to customers. She is requesting a loan to purchase lengths of ‘pagne’ cloth and dozens of hair extensions to satisfy her customer base. With a bit of courage, she plans to lift herself out of poverty in order to be independent.
