This is 37-year-old Rose who is single and has three children. In 1999, Rose established her corn and cassava dough business. She began her business to take care of her home. Her business is located in her residence and her main customers are all ages and sexes. Working seven days a week and all hours in a day, she earns a very respectable profit. So she is requesting a loan of GHS 1,200 to expand her business.
Rose needs this loan to buy two bags of maize to grind to dough and sell to customers. She believes this loan will help her increase her profits.
In the future, Rose plans to expand her trade and hopes to be able to educate her children. She thanks Kiva for the support.
