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


A loan helped to reinvest in her business, purchasing more grains and also enabling her to save more.


Vida's story

Vida is a 23-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her sister in Ghana. She sells grains and cereals. With her first Kiva loan, Vida purchased grains and cereals on a smaller scale. She used part of the profit she earned to reinvest in her business and started to increase her inventory.

Vida is requesting a second loan to purchase cereals and grains in bulk to meet the demands of her customers. She plans to use the profit she earns to expand her business and introduce a new line of jewelry products and fashionable ladieswear.

Vida will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering two and half hours per week as a Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) Peer Educator, leading life skills sessions for students in schools. She covers topics such as ‘my rights my choices,’ ‘choosing your career path,’ active citizenship, etc.

Vida's dream is to further her education.
