Biliki's story

Biliki is a hair stylist who makes a living by selling hair extensions and hair cream at retail prices in her shop. She is happy because this is the high season for her business and she hopes sales will increase. Biliki is 30 years old, married and has two children, both of whom are doing well in school. She is a LAPO client, and has applied for a loan for NGN 50,000 to buy more hair extensions and cream to sell. She is very grateful to all Kiva lenders for their interest and support.
