Emmanuel Group's story

Peter is 45 years old and is married with four children. Due to his experience and background, he was nominated as the group leader for "Emmanuel" Group.

Peter has owned and operated a general retail business for the past four years. His business is well-organized and requires that she work from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Despite the long days, Peter is determined to operate a successful business in order to provide a better life for his family.

He has requested a loan from Kiva through ID Ghana in order to buy bags of charcoal to sell.

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