Grace's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to process palm oil for storage.

Grace's Group's story

Grace is a thirty-year-old mother of three. She lives with her husband who is a carpenter. Annually, Grace processes palm oil for the local market. Her first loan funded by Kiva lenders through the Nke-Anyi cooperative was a life-changing experience because her income increased, and she was able to meet her family's responsibilities and afford to save with the cooperative.

A portion of this 650,000 NGN loan to these four women will help Grace store a portion of her palm oil monthly this season. She hopes that by the end of next year her savings with the cooperative will be enough for her to purchase a motorcycle of her own. She and her group members thank all Kiva lenders who support their loan.
