Bendia 27 (2) Group's story

Bendia 27 (2) Group has just finished its first Kiva loan term. The reimbursement was made normally. Haoua, the featured member, thanks all the staff and lenders of Kiva for their support.

With her share of the loan, Haoua was able to buy raw materials to make the soap she sells. She made a profit that permitted her to buy clothing for her children, make some other expenditures for the family, and especially to grow her business.

Haoua needs another loan to continue her business. After her sales, her profit will permit her to continue her activity.

In this group: Haoua, Aminata, Djeneba, Mariam, Sarata, Séboué, Aby, Karidja, Angel, Awa
