Grace's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more sacks of corn to prepare kenkey (a local food) to sell.

Grace's story

Grace is 53 years old. She is married and has four children between the ages of 29 and 41 years. She lives in Shiabu, a densely populated area in Accra. Grace is into a kenkey (a local food) making business and has done this business for 21 years. She also sells piped water in buckets as a second source of income, and as landlady, she gets additional income from rent payments.

Grace will add this loan to her working capital to buy more sacks of corn to prepare kenkey in large quantities to sell. She believes this will increase her income and boost her business to enable her to manage her home, as her husband has retired from fishing due to old age.

Thank you, Kiva lenders, for supporting Grace's business.
