A loan of $475 helped to buy 'pagne' cloth to sell.

Yawa's story

With this third loan she is requesting from our institution, Ms. Yawa wants to stock up on 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa). She is 41 years old and the mother of three children, of whom two are in school. In 2004, she started her business and is very pleased with it because it brings in significant revenues enabling her to support herself and ensure her family's living situation. She wants to establish a store, make her business prosper, and see her children grow up under good conditions.
