A loan of $475 helped to meet customer demand by purchasing additional foodstuffs and cooking oil.


Dorcas's story

Dorcas is a 41-year-old married woman with 5 children. To earn a living, she sells foodstuffs, drinks, and cooking oil at retail prices to her customers. She explains that she sells her various products for long hours to ensure that she can put food on the table in order to feed her immediate family. She has been in this business for a long time.



She is now seeking a loan in the amount of N70,000 ($425) to purchase more foodstuffs and cooking oil for resale purposes. Indeed, this is the high season for sales, so she hopes to generate higher profits by satisfying the increased customer demand. She thanks all Kiva lenders for their support.
