Iye's story

This is 62-year-old Iye. She is married and has five children who are 39, 36, 33, 30 and 27. In 1990, Iye established her clothing and textiles business. She began her business just to enable her to solve her domestic problems. Her business is located at the city centre and her main customers are mostly women. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 700,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. Iye has already received and successfully repaid two loans. She now requires a new loan in order to buy ladies' shoes-1,500,000, wax cotton-2,500,000 and dry cotton-1,000,000. She hopes that this loan will help increase both her profit and stock level. In the future, Iye plans to rent a shop. She is saying thanks to Kiva. She appreciates the gesture she is receiving from Kiva. She thanks you for your support.
