A loan of $1,025 helped purchase of traditional beads and jewellery for sale.


Felicia's story

Felicia O. is married, has 6 children, and is also a grandmother. Her husband is a retired forest guard, while Felicia herself works as a trader, selling traditional beads and jewellery at retail prices to customers in Benin city. Nigerians love traditional beads, and they are part of all traditional clothing items. The traditional beads in Nigeria are also a mark of honour and respect.
Felicia currently hopes to expand her business; however, she faces the challenge of insufficient capital. She is therefore requesting a loan of a NGN 150,000 to purchase additional beads and jewellery items for sale. Felicia is thankful to all Kiva lenders.
