A loan helped to buy clothing such as jeans, shirts, and tailoring accessories needed to meet customer demand.


Brazil Group's story

Patience is 38 years old, married, and has two children. Due to her experience and background, she was nominated as the leader of the Brazil Group.

Patience has owned and operated a clothing business for the past six years. Like many of those in this group, her business is well organized and requires her to work from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm every day. Despite these long days, Patience is determined to operate a successful business in order to provide a better life for her family, primarily by financing her children's schooling.

Patience has requested a loan from Kiva through ID Ghana in order to buy clothing such as jeans, shirts, and tailoring accessories needed to meet customer demand.

With the profits from this loan, she will be able to reinvest in her business, pay school fees for her children, and save for her future.
