Adwowa
Even though Adwowa grew up in poverty without an education, it has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. An entrepreneur for the past two years, Adwowa operates a chop bar (where local dishes are sold) in Ohiaba, near Cape Coast. Her business has enjoyed substantial growth, and she uses her income to help her husband raise their two children.



Adwowa is unable to meet growing demand for her products due to limited inventory capacity, and so will use this loan to purchase more ingredients. With the new resulting profits, she wants to ensure that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.

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.
