A loan helped a member to buy a load of firewood to use for preparing cooked food to sell.


Basnéré Group's story

Basnéré Group has just finished its first Kiva loan. The reimbursement was made in a normal fashion. Roketa, the featured group member, thanks all the staff and the lenders at Kiva for their support.

With the loan, Roketa was able to buy 5 jerrycans of oil, 4 sacks of rice, and some condiments for her cooked food preparation and sale. She made a profit that allowed her to pay for clothing for her children and some expenditures for her family, and especially to further her restaurant business.

Roketa needs more loans so that she can continue her restaurant business. When she has finished making her sales, her profit will allow her to open a family savings account for the well-being of her family.

In this group: Roketa, Ouipoko, Bibata, Yéwayé, Fanta, Awa, Thérèse, Babi, Nebnoma
