Mabelle's story

Mabelle M. is a 27-year-old single woman who lives in the village of Wome, a small town located in a lush and beautiful area of Togo near the Ghanaian border. To provide for her parents and family, Mabelle sells beverages and liquor along the side of the road. She is pictured here in her shop. With this loan from Kiva, Mabelle hopes to travel to Lomé, 130 kilometers away, to restock her inventory with drinks to resell in Wome. With the money she will earn from these sales, she hopes to be able to continue to take care of her maternal family, as well as marry and create a family of her own.
