A loan of $1,025 helped to buy grocery products for resale.


Adjowa's story

Adjowa, age 39, is married to an employee and has two children to support. Since 2005, she's been reselling grocery products.

She gets her supplies at the Grand Market in Lomé, and resells to her customers in a neighborhood of her town.

Adjowa is seeking her second loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to buy more products. She wants to ensure a better future for her family.
