Rashida's story

Rashida is a 21-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her six siblings in the Bawku West district in Ghana.

She is requesting a Kiva loan to start her own business selling necklace and beaded sandals.

Rashida plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and expand her business.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering two and half hours per week as a member of the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) Alumnae association, CAMA, as a Peer Educator. She will lead life skills sessions for students in local schools on topics such as rights and choices, choosing a career path and active citizenship.
