A loan of $200 helped to buy fabrics to resell.


Awa's story

Mrs. Awa lives in Senegal. She's married and a fabrics merchant. She has three years of experience in buying and selling fabrics. She's a member of a local branch of Kiva's partner, U-IMCEC, from which she's seeking a loan of XOF 100'000.

She intends to use this loan to buy fabrics that she will resell to her clientele. Her goal is to bolster her business and increase her profits. As a consequence, she'll be able to improve the nutritional conditions of her family and increase her savings.

Her future project is to further expand her business and have a shop to display her products.
