A loan of $675 helped to buy more foodstuffs to sell.


Dona's story

Dona is a woman full of strength. She is married with 7 children and lives in Benin City, Nigeria. She goes to the villages around Benin City to buy food items and palm oil. She then sells these items in one of Benin City's most popular markets. She started this business in 1994 and has been borrowing from LAPO for 5 years now to help grow her business. Dona is asking for a loan of $675 to enable her to buy more food items and palm oil to sell. She will be very grateful to Kiva lenders if they can assist her. She says that it will not only benefit her business by helping achieve her goal of expansion, but also her family, who she helps support with the profits.
