A loan of $850 helped to buy more provisions for sale.


Queen's story

Queen, who is 41years old and married with six children, lives in Benin City, Nigeria where she sells provisions. She took over the business in 1991 from her husband, as they decided that she would run the shop and he would find another income source to help meet the household expenses. Queen likes the business and dedicates her time to its day-to-day operations and planning how to make the business grow.

Queen is asking for a Kiva loan of $850 to buy more provisions. She says that the more selection she is able to offer, the more sales she will be able to make. The capital to keep a store stocked is great while the profits are small and not enough to take care of her family and buy all of the provisions she needs. She is therefore counting on capital from a loan to help her make her shop more successful. She is thankful for any help Kiva lenders can give.
