A loan helped to buy more stock of bottled water and drinks for sale.

Dina's story

Dina lives and works in Adukrom, near the city of Koforidua. She is a married woman with a child and she is 57 years of age.

Dina opened a shop to sell bottled water and drinks in her community. This initiative came to light after she observed people had to travel long distances to buy drinks and water for social events such as marriage and child-naming ceremonies and funerals.

The business is picking up fast, but she has realized she needs more capital to increase her stock. She has thus approached Advans for a loan to help her buy varied stock of water and drinks for her shop. With the increase in stock, Dina will be able to attract more customers to her shop.

She wants to use the profits to expand the business.

She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva lenders for supporting her.
