A loan of $600 helped to buy generic drugs.


Kossiwa's story

Kossiwa, age 31, is married to a tire maker and has four children. She's been a reseller of generic drugs since 2001.

She gets her supplies in Lomé, and resells at the market to any customer. She works alone, and does not face difficulties at this time.

Kossiwa is seeking her first loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to purchase generic drugs. She wants to reinvest in her business.

In the forthcoming years, she would like to open a store. She says that she intends to use her profits to take care of her family.
