A loan helped to allow two members to buy a sewing machine to provide services.


Patience Rue Egalite's story

Oticia thanks all Kiva lenders for their support. Thanks to the previous loan, her associated institution, which helps ultra-poor people, has generated significant profit over a year. She is motivated to include more poor women financially. She hopes she can do so by providing literacy programs and basic business skills to them.

As school opens, there are two members who are looking for a loan on Kiva to buy a sewing machine. Therefore, the associated institution requests a loan as to facilitate them to buy the needed equipment.

The committee board has not changed. From left to right in the picture: Nicole (treasurer), Filasie (advisor), Antoine (deputy treasurer), Oticia (president), and Frederic (administrator).


This loan is special because:

It provides village associations with access to credit.
