Lizzy's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase more oil to sell.
Lizzy sells cooking oil (palm oil) and her husband is a retired civil servant. She is 50 years old and a mother of four. Her children are in school. Lizzy lives in Lagos State, Nigeria, and has been in business since 2004. In order to increase the size of her business, she is requesting a loan of 150,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more palm oil to sell at retail prices. She puts in long hours trying to keep her businesses sustainable. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers. With the business, she will be able to take care of her children. She thanks all her Kiva lenders.
