Kiva Lending Team: Christiana Monilola Memorial KIVA Team
We loan because...
Christiana Monilola Abiona worked hard as a mother and business woman, and gave selflessly of herself and her resources to help others get a start in life and make a living. She was a woman of faith who believed in people improving their life situation through hard work. She believed in "teaching people how to fish rather give them the fish."
The team is set up in memory of Mrs. Christiana Monilola Abiona by her children on the 20th anniversary of her passing. All are welcome to join and identify with a woman who was a pioneer business woman in Lagos, Nigeria. Through sheer tenacity and business acumen, Mrs. Abiona was able to create businesses and employment opportunities for many. Her legacy lives on.
