A loan of $300 helped to buy yams, corn, and beans.


Zinabou's story

Zinabou, age 47, lives in Lomé with her three children. The youngest is 21 and is the only one who still attends school. Zinabou has been selling yams, corn, and beans at her home for eight years.

In order to better meet customer demand, she's seeking a second loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to replenish her stock. She hopes to reinvest in her business and help her children to blossom more.
