A loan helped to buy a varied stock of provisions for resale.

Vera's story

37-year-old, Vera, is a resident of Kasoa, a community in the central region of Ghana. She is married with two children.

For five years now, her source of income is from the operation of a provision shop in the community. Her neighbours are able to get household consumables from her shop, with ease and almost at any time of the day. She opens her shop very early in the morning and closes late into the night. She is such a hardworking woman. She is seeking financial assistance to buy stock for the shop, so as to meet the growing demands of her customers.

She looks forward to expanding her business with profits from the loan. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming to her aid.
