A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase more phone recharge cards and pure water to sell.


Idowu's story

Idowu is 34 years old and is married with two children. She helps her husband to support the family.

Idowu sells phone rechargeable cards and pure water and has been in the business for the past four years. One of her greatest joys is the one-on-one interaction she is able to have with her customers.

With this loan of 170,000 NGN Idowu plans to increase and restock her rechargeable phone cards and water due to an increase in demand. With this business she hopes to increase her earnings in the long run and be able to provide better for her children's education.

Most of the challenges Idowu faces in her business are that the electricity supply is inconsistent, and that she needs it to cool her water. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders for their support.
