A loan of $350 helped to purchase more maize in bulk for making pap.

Suwebat's story

50-year-old Suwebat sells pap (a traditional porridge made from ground maize) from her home. She buys maize in bulk and processes it into pap which she supplies to big buyers who sell it together with bean cake. Most people prefer taking pap as breakfast due to its light nature.

Suwebat travels far from the city to purchases maize from the farmers, especially when it is out of season, to make sure her customers are supplied. She has been in this business for the past eleven years and has improved on her living standard. She is married and has four children.

Suwebat is requesting a loan of NGN 50,000 to purchase more maize in bulk for making pap. She expresses her huge thanks to all Kiva lenders.
