Sasagara Ii Group's story

This is her 10th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored loan will increase her capital and allow her to buy a large quantity of food (beans, rice, palm oil, etc.) to cook and sell in her restaurant, so that she can earn more money. In the years ahead, she would like to buy a plot of land and some cultivable fields.
