Akosua
Akosua is divorced and has 6 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, she is a successful businesswoman. She sells cooked rice and vegetable stew in Bremang (near Cape Coast). She has been actively involved in this business for some years now. As the sole breadwinner in the family, she uses her income to provide for the entire family.

Akosua will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of rice and vegetables, thus helping her improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, she plans to further diversify the types of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.

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.
