Banakinawoe Alice's story

Alice is 28 and single. She is a dressmaker and also sells notions and traditional wraps. She orders her supplies twice a month at the market in the capital for resale at home.

She is requesting a loan to purchase dozens of fasteners, boxes of sewing thread, and traditional wraps. With a little courage, she plans to raise herself out of poverty and have the means to take care of herself.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer firouzeh attwood.
