A loan helped to purchase hair weaves and extensions.


Marie's story

Marie is a 35-year-old soon-to-be-married mother to two children aged one and three years old. Only one of them currently attends school.

She works as a vendor at the local market, selling hair weaves and extensions. With the New Year festivities approaching, she would like to increase her stock of merchandise in order to better satisfy her customers. This will allow her to increase her profits and thereby better care for her family.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Christopher Smith.


This loan is special because:

It gives poor business owners in Cameroon the capital to grow their businesses.
