This month our KIVA loan is going to Janet Igbinoba of Benin City, Nigeria.
Janet is a 60-year-old widow with six children and several grandchildren. Life as a widow has been very challenging to her and the family.
Right now she has a small stall from which she sells groceries and drinks. She loves her business because of the one-on-one interaction that she has with her customers. She uses her years of experience in business to attract and retain more customers. She hopes to own a supermarket in the future. She will use her loan to buy more stock for her stall and sends a "thank you" to all KIVA lenders.
