A loan of $800 helped to buy general food products.


Filomaine's story

Filomaine, age 37, is married to a laundry worker and has three children. She's been working as a reseller since 1999.

She sells general food products to any customer at her home and works alone. She purchases her supplies in Lomé.

At this time, her main difficulty is that she is out of stock. She's seeking her second loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to buy general food products.

She wants to reinvest in her business. In the forthcoming years, Filomaine would like to expand her business. She says that she intends to use her profits to take care of her family.
