Ekua
Although she has received no prior formal education, Ekua is an entrepreneur. She specializes in selling onions and used clothes in Emissakrom (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in both enterprises for three years.

Ekua is married and has 3 children. Her husband works as a carpenter. The proceeds from her businesses normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and paying their children’s school fees.

Ekua wants to use her loan to increase her current inventory levels, hence allowing her to sell greater quantities of both onions and used clothing. In the long term, Ekua plans to reinvest the future profits in her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.

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.
