Delphine's story

A trained cook, Delphine is married and the mother of two children. As a secondary business, she sells hair extensions, shoes, pagnes (colorful African cloth) and cosmetics, in a working class neighborhood in Cotonou. In order to bolster her stock and meet customer demand, she's seeking a loan from Kiva's partner, Finadev, to maximize her profits and take part in covering the family expenses.
