Hawa's story

This is 31 year-old Hawa. She is married and has 3 children aged 13, 10 and 2. She has 3 additional dependents, who live with her for schooling.

In 2003, Hawa established her shoes, clothing and textiles business. She began her business to help her husband in the running of their home. Her business is located at the heart of town and her main customers are both men and woman. Working 7 days a week and 16 hours a day, she earns about Le 900,000 every month from this business.

Hawa would like a loan in the amount of Le 5,000,000 to buy more stock for her shop. She hopes that this loan will increase her income. In the future, she plans to own a house and to increase her stock.

Hawa appreciate the gesture she is receiving from kiva. She thanks you for your support.
