A loan of $225 helped to buy hair extensions and weaves.


Ibidou's story

Mrs. Ibidou, age 29, is married and the mother of two school-attending children, age 6 and 3. She got trained as a hairdresser. In 2002, she opened the workshop where she runs her business. In addition to her hairdressing services, she also sells hair extensions to her customers. She's seeking a first loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to increase her stock. She hopes to re-inject her profits in her business, and ensure a proper education for her children.
