A loan of $1,000 helped to buy jewelry.

Rosalie's story

Since 2005, Mrs. Rosalie has been reselling jewelry at the market. She usually gets her supplies from wholesalers in Benin.

She's seeking her second loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to buy supplies and meet customer demand.

Profits earned from the sales will be used to expand her business and take better care of her family.

Mrs. Rosalie is 41 years old and lives with a furniture maker. She's the mother of three children, aged 18, 16, and 12, who all go to school.
