A loan helped to buy 25 sacks of charcoal.


Afia Padawassou's story

Married with three children in her care, Afia is 63. She sells charcoal. She gets her charcoal twice a month from producers in nearby farms. She currently wants to take a loan to order enough sacks of charcoal with the goal of satisfying her clientele and have more profits to take good care of her children.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Sherry W..


This loan is special because:

It helps vulnerable populations in Togo access credit and grow their businesses.
