Kiswendsida Group’s story

Kiswendsida Group has just completed their first loan with Kiva and the payments were all made on time. Safiata, who represents the group, thanks staff and lenders for their support. With the loan Safiata was able to pay for condiments and bags of rice for dishes she sells in her restaurant. She made a profit which allowed her to buy clothes for her children, to make a few purchases for her family and, above all, to increase her business.

Safiata needs another loan to support her restaurant. She is planning to enlarge her space and to add new dishes to satisfy her clients.

In this group: Safiata, Mamounata
