Dorcas Ndema's story

Dorcas Ndema is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her extended family in the Bawku West district in Ghana. She runs a grocery business.

Dorcas is requesting a Kiva loan to buy the groceries in wholesale quantities to meet customer demand. She plans to use the profit she earns to re-sit for her exams and re-invest in her business.

Dorcas will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering two-and-half-hours per week as a CAMFED Peer Educator, leading life skills sessions for students in local schools on topics such as rights and choices, choosing a career path and active citizenship.
