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


Fumilayo's story

Fumilayo is 52 years old. She is married and has six children. She sells foodstuffs like onions, maize, etc., in bulk to her customers. She buys her goods from the rural market, where she gets them at a cheaper rate. But her challenge now is that she needs additional capital to buy more goods from the market to sell, make more profit and avoid always traveling to the market. She has been in this business for more than 10 years.

Fumilayo is asking for a loan of 50,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more foodstuffs to sell and get more discounts to maximize profit. She expresses her huge gratitude to all Kiva lenders for their financial support.
