Forgive's story

Twenty-five-year-old Forgive is a resident of Koforidua, the Eastern regional capital of Ghana. She is yet to marry and has no children.

For two years now, her source of income has been operating a provisions shop in the community. Her neighbors are able to get household products from her shop with ease and at almost any time of the day, as she opens her shop very early in the morning and closes late at night. She is such a hardworking woman.

Currently, Forgive 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 the business with her profits from this loan. Forgive is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming to her aid.
