A loan of $850 helped to buy, store and resell corn.

Kayi's story

Married with four children, Mrs. Kayi A. is also responsible for a sister and a bother who she has made apprentices. Educated to secondary level, she is very experienced in the stocking of corn. Mrs. A. started in the corn business at an early age in order to make an effective contribution to household expenses. She received an initial loan of $150 which she was soon able to pay off without any problem. Mrs. A. is requesting a second loan of $850 which will allow her to purchase a substantial stock of corn, which she will resell during a period of shortage. The income from these sales will be put towards family expenses.
