A loan helped a member to buy pagnes [traditional cloth wrap] for resale.


Gs Sidzabda Group's story

Gs Sidzabda has just completed its KIVA loan. Repayments were made normally. Cathérine, the representative member of the group, thanks all the staff and lenders at KIVA for their support.

With that loan, Cathérine was able to buy pagnes [traditional cloth wrap] of varying qualities and resell them. The profits she made allowed her to pay for her children's clothing, to cover a few expenses for her family, and above all to increase her business.

She needs more financing to continue her business. She would like to stock up on her supply of pagnes to meet her customers' needs.

In this group: Cathérine, Noelie, Agatte

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Rizlane Baladi.

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