Generosite B Group's story

Kamate, age 34, is a brave merchant and a member and the treasurer of Générosité B Group. She's energetic and an experienced senior entrepreneur. She's the mother and caretaker of three children, who all go to school. Kamate sells superior clothing (Super Wax "pagnes", a kind of colorful African cloth). She displays her products at the busy market in her town. She started her business with support from her biological mother, who also trained her. Later on, she got a loan from Kiva's partner, the MFI Hekima. She's been running her business for 10 years. This new loan will be used to buy 45 pieces of pagnes. In the future, she wishes to become a wholesaler, buy a land lot to build a house, and feed her children and send them to school. In the end, she strongly thanks Hekima for its contribution to making women entrepreneurs who are excluded from traditional banks self-supporting, especially at this critical post-war time in the East of the country.
