A loan of $3,150 helps a member to buy cassava with which to make into attiéké to sell.


Shalom Pade Group's story

Shalom Pade just completed its first Kiva loan. The repayments were made regularly. Sapradia, the representative, thanks all the personnel and lenders at Kiva for the support. With the loan, Sapradia was able to pay for cassava with which to make into attiéké (a traditional Ivorian dish made from cassava) to sell. She made profits that allowed her to buy clothes for her children, to pay for a few family expenses, and especially to grow her business. She needs more loans to continue her business. She wants to restock up in large quantities to satisfy her customers, have good turnover, and grow her business even more.

In this group: Sapradia, Alimata, Eljonai G, Téné

It empowers people in an underserved area to grow their businesses.
