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

A loan helped to buy more spare parts for her business.

Margaret's story

Margaret is 50 years old. She is a single mother with two children, ages 15 and 33 years. She is a sole proprietor who imports spare parts like wheel cylinders, exhaust pipes, and car engines to sell to people. She has been in this business for the past 4 years. The spare-part dealing business in Ghana is male-dominated. We find Margaret to be a hardworking woman because of the kind of business she is in, competing with the men.

She is accessing this loan to top up her working capital due to high cost of importing. She hopes to expand her business to create employment opportunities. The income she will get will improve her family’s living condition.

Thank you Kiva lenders for supporting Margaret’s business.
