Salamatu's story

Salamatu is a 22-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her extended family in the Bawku West district in Ghana.

Salamatu is requesting a Kiva loan to start her own mobile money (e-money) and mobile phone recharge cards business. Salamatu plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and pay school fees for her siblings.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering for two and half hours per week as a CAMFED Peer Educator, leading life skills sessions for students in local schools on topics such as rights and choices, choosing a career path and active citizenship.
