As part of Mash’s corporate social responsibility initiative, we provide sustainable loans through KIVA to aid entrepreneurs in developing countries.

For the June Entrepreneur of the month, we have chosen Blandine, from Congo. Mash have funded the rest of her loan amount through KIVA allowing Blandine to pursue her plans in purchasing hair products and to expand her fresh goods business.

Blandine’s father passed away while she was at school and as the eldest sibling, she began working to support the rest of the family. She began hairdressing in 1995 and is now 34 years old with two children, aged sixteen and two.

After receiving her second loan and demonstrating strong management skills, Blandine branched out into fresh goods such as chicken, saltwater fish and sausages. Her strategy is to promote her products, offer affordable prices as well as better quality goods.

She will use this loan to buy hair products abroad and hopes to become a wholesaler for fresh products. Blandine’s ultimate goal is to improve her family’s and her mother’s quality of life. Mash are delighted to be helping Blandine and her family. We hope she succeeds in her plans.
