A loan of $1,125 helped to buy pagnes (colorful African cloth) and bazin cloth.


Rafatou's story

Mrs. Rafatou, age 29, is married to a car mechanic. She doesn't have children yet. She's a merchant and sells pagnes (colorful African cloth) and bazin cloth to a diverse clientele in a shop.

She gets her supplies in Lomé from wholesalers of pagnes and bazin cloth. She wishes to satisfy her customers' every demand, and she lacks funds to get supplies.

She's a long-time client of Kiva's partner, WAGES, who is seeking her fourth loan. With this loan, she will buy pagnes and bazin cloth in order to reach her goal: satisfy her customers.

In the future, she would like to ensure her business is sustainable and enable her family to blossom. It should be noted that she's been in this field of business for eight years.
