After graduating from junior high school, Grace decided to set up her own grocery store in Yabiw (near Cape Coast). With over five years’ of experience, she is looking to expand her enterprise. Unfortunately, she is limited by a lack of funding. This loan will be used to help her buy more groceries for resale. She aims to use the profits from her business to help her husband (who is a security guard) with the upkeep of their house while ensuring that their two children are able to experience a better life.
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.
