A loan helped to buy 4 dozen pairs of pantyhose, 2 dozen baby outfits, and 3 dozen pairs of underwear.


Kossiwavi's story

Kossiwavi is 34 years old, single, and the mother of 1 child. She is a clothing and underwear merchant. She buys her items once a month at the market to resell them from neighborhood to neighborhood.

She wants to have a loan to increase her purchases of pantyhose, baby outfits, and underwear. She wants to have enough savings to escape from poverty.

Translated from French by Kiva volunteer Bonnie Zaleski.


This loan is special because:

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