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


Toyin's story

Toyin, a hardworking and honest woman, lives in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria, where she sells foodstuffs at retail prices. She loves this business, which she has been engaged in for many years, because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers, and uses her experience to both retain her clientele and attract more customers.



Toyin, a 35-year-old married mother of three children, is now requesting a loan of NGN 50,000 to purchase more foodstuffs to sell, hoping to expand her business.
