Mashiratu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase products in larger quantities to increase sales and profits.
Mashiratu is a 38-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her aunt and siblings in the West Gonja district. She runs a retail business selling books, pens, pencils, and erasers. Mashiratu is requesting a Kiva loan in order to buy more items for her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her siblings' education. She also volunteers as a Cama member who supports organized Cama general meetings and community advocacy programs in the district. The interest on her social-interest loan will be repaid through her weekly volunteer work.
