A loan of $350 helped to purchase more foodstuffs to sell.


Rachael's story

Rachael is 34 years old and a mother of three children, the youngest of whom is just 13 months old. Rachael's husband sells lubricants to support the home while Rachael sells foodstuffs at retail prices to her customers. Before now, she hawked cooked foods from one place to another. However, with a loan from Kiva partner, LAPO, she was then able to get a stall and sell foodstuffs. Rachael opens her stall daily from 8am to 6pm. She is now requesting a loan of 50,000 NGN to purchase more foodstuffs to sell. She hopes to expand her business. She says thank you to all Kiva lenders and to LAPO.
