A loan of $350 helped to purchase more bags of melon to sell.


Mary's story

Mary sells bags of melon at both wholesale and retail prices to her customers. In Nigeria, melon is used in the preparation of egusi soup (a soup made with ground melon seeds, vegetables, seasonings and meat). The demand for her bags of melon is high. This is the high season for her business and she hopes to make more profits.

Mary is 31 years old and is married with two children. Her husband sells foodstuffs to also support the home.

Mary hopes for a loan of 50,000 NGN to purchase more bags of melon to sell. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders.
