Aba produces kenkey (fermented maize dough) for sale at Dabire, near Elimina. She is a single parent with 2 children. Aba has been selling kenkey for the past three years. As a single parent, she is responsible for the general upkeep of her children, and so she uses her income for that.

Aba will use her loan to buy goods, like maize, necessary to make kenkey. Whatever she has left she will save for the future and reinvest in her business. She hopes to use the new profits 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: ). 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.
