A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase more foodstuffs to cook and sell.


Helen's story

Helen is 50 years old and is married with six children, the youngest being 9 years old. Her husband is a businessman. Helen loves cooking and so she commercialized her cooking skill by having a restaurant in the market in Agbor, Delta State. Her stall is strategically positioned in the market and this makes a lot of people patronize her stall. She cooks mouth-watering Nigerian cooked foods like fufu (cassava dough), rice, beans, boiled yam, stew and drinks. She has been in this business for a long time. Helen is requesting a loan of NGN 150,000 to purchase more foodstuffs to cook and sell. She says thanks to all Kiva lenders.
