A loan of $925 helped to buy and re-sell jewelry.


Dopé's story

This lady is married and has one child. She runs an income-generating business selling jewelry at the Hédzranawoé market in Lomé. This business allows her to contribute financially to the running of her household. She manages her business well, which earns her the respect of her husband. She supplies herself in Benin, where she buys pearls and high-quality jewelry, and then re-sells these items in Lomé. Women in both the private and public sectors come to order jewelry from her. She knows how to accommodate her customers. Currently, she wants to buy new jewelry; it is for this reason that she is seeking a loan through WAGES (one of Kiva's field partners) to buy ladies' and men's wristwatches and custom-made gold necklaces, as well as other high-quality items.
