A loan of $675 helped to buy shoes and grocery items in bulk for sale.


Mary's story

Mary, age 44, sells groceries and shoes. She is excited to be receiving her first Kiva loan through LAPO, where she is a member of a group called the Royal Mothers Group. Mary is married and has four children.

She started her business four years ago and reports that her major challenge has been insufficient capital to expand her business. She is therefore requesting a loan in the amount of NGN 100,000. She will use this loan to buy shoes and groceries in bulk in order to get a better price. She sends a big thank you to Kiva lenders.
