A loan helped a member to buy baguettes for sale.


Gassan Kadi Group's story

Gassan Kadi has just finished their first KIVA loan. Repayments were made normally. Djénéba, the representative member of the group, thanks all the KIVA personnel and lenders for their support. With this loan Djénéba was able to buy baguettes for sale. She realized a profit which allowed her to buy clothes for her children, to cover some family expenses, and particularly to increase her business.

Once again she is need of a loan to carry on her business. She wants to restock her inventory to the point where she can meet her customers needs, have a decent turnover, and further expand her business.

In this group: Djénéba, Fatoumata, Windsom
