Nimo
Nimo, a mother of five who is married to a farmer, has been selling banku and waakye near Kwarhinkrom for the past 20 years. Banku is cooked and fermented maize or cassava dough, and waakye consists of rice and beans mixed together. She uses her income to pay her children’s school fees, and her loan will help her to buy more maize and rice. Nimo hopes to use the new profits to continue to expand her business.

Important Information About CRAN

Please note that Kiva considers loans to this Field Partner, CRAN, to be particularly HIGH RISK. This organization has had very serious delinquency problems brought about by problems with its credit methodology, local environmental shocks including a depletion of local fisheries in its core area of operation (Cape Coast and the Central Province), and insufficient follow up with late clients. Lenders to this business should be aware that there is an increased risk of not getting repaid on this loan due to the challenges facing the Field Partner.

CRAN's creditors - including Kiva - have entered into a new Restructuring Agreement (For more information, please see CRAN's Field Partner profile: http://www.kiva.org/partners/91 ). Kiva will extend its ongoing policy of allowing CRAN to continue to raise funds on the Kiva website. New funds raised will be used to make repayments on older CRAN loans via Kiva’s standard net billing process.
