Mrs. Abla S. was born in 1984 in Lomé. She is married and the mother of one child as well as being responsible for another child. Not having had the chance to pursue her studies for very long, she quickly became involved in the business of loincloths. Her husband being sick, she is not longer able to single-handedly support the household.

A very dynamic woman with the ability to manage a loan, she is asking for a loan of $800 in order to have enough funds to supply in bulk quantities loincloths in the big supermarkets. This would allow her to support her husband during his illness and tend to the needs of her family.

Translated from French by Chloé Tuot, a Kiva Volunteer.

Madame S. Abla est née en 1984 à Lomé. Elle est mariée et mère d’un enfant avec un autre enfant à charge. N’ayant pas eu la chance d’évoluer dans les études, elle s’est vite lancée dans le commerce de pagnes. Son mari étant malade, elle n’arrive plus à supporter seule les charges du foyer.

Très dynamique, et ayant une capacité de gestion du crédit, elle sollicite un crédit de $800 afin d’avoir un fond de commerce signifiant pour s’approvisionner en gros en pagnes dans les grands magasins. Ceci pour pouvoir supporter son mari dans sa maladie et subvenir au besoin de la famille.
