Yawa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for 12 lengths of 'pagne' cloth to sell.
Yawa is a divorced woman, 45 years old, who is the mother of two. She is a merchant of 'pagnes' [the colorful wax cloth of western Africa] and does her ordering of supplies at the market. She is seeking a loan to purchase a few lengths of ‘pagne’ cloth. She wants to earn her customers’ satisfaction and to lift herself out of poverty.
