A loan of $1,075 helped to buy hair extensions and weaves.


Kossiwa's story

A professional hairdresser, Kossiwa opened her salon in a neighbourhood in Lomé after completing her training.

Alongside her main business, she sells hair extensions and weaves to her customers. As she is unable to satisfy customer demand due to lack of funds, she is requesting a fourth loan to enable her to buy more products.

In the future, Kossiwa hopes to open other sales locations and start a family in financially stable circumstances. She is 32 years old and married, and has been running her business for 10 years.
