Grace's story

Grace U. is 60 years old and married with 6 children. She sells yams and food items like garri, made from cassava. She purchases yams from the north, a 13 hours drive from Benin City, Nigeria. With the holiday season approaching she expects an increased demand for her yams and plans to increase her stock. She is requesting a loan for N50,000 ($425) to purchase more yams to sell. She is happy for this opportunity because her profits will increase. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders for their financial support and LAPO microfinance for their business training.
