Hannah's story

Hannah is a woman with dreams. She lives in Koforidua with her husband and two children. Both children are in school, and she is determined for them to have a good and well-rounded education.

Hannah is 36 years old, and for the past 15 years she has run her own cosmetics shop. Her customers are largely hair dressers as well as other individuals.

With the help of Kiva lenders, Hannah is asking for a loan so she can buy new and different cosmetics, growing her business so she can support her children. Hannah wants to make a difference in her children’s lives, and you can help her!
