A loan of $450 helped to buy pagnes (a type of West African cloth) and damask.

Brissawé's story

Brissawé is a 38-year-old woman. She is married to an accountant. They have two children.
Brissawé has worked as a retailer since 1996. She sells pagnes (a type of brightly-printed West African cloth) and damask door-to-door. She buys her goods at the Grand Market in Lomé and in Mali.
Brissawé has requested her second loan through WAGES (one of Kiva's field partners) in order to buy 10 sets of damask of the "riche" variety.
