Edwige's story

Mrs. Edwige, age 37, is married to a shopkeeper and they have four children together. She resells food staples in a store, a business which enables her to provide for herself and help her husband cover the household's expenses. She's seeking her second loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, and she will use it to buy some merchandise to respond well to customers' wishes. She wants to use her profits to put money away in order to finish rebuilding, become a wholesaler, and start a financially stable family.
