A loan of $625 helped to buy food products.


Touré's story

K. is a 33-year-old woman, and runs an income-generating business selling general food products. She has run this business since 2004 and gets her supplies in Lomé, at the Kégué local market. She operates this business in her own store. The current demands of her clientele are very high, and she would like to supply herself with various general food products, so she is seeking her first loan through WAGES (one of Kiva's field partners) to obtain supplies and satisfy her customers.
