Akinlade's story

This is a very energetic man who opened a ready-to-wear store in 1990. He sells men's clothing and has a faithful clientele, many people likes his clothes since they are of quality. Eager to supply his store with the latest clothing styles, he's seeking a first loan from Kiva's partner, WAGES, in order to buy 40 men's shirts of new quality, as well as new shoe models. He's married and the father of one child.
