Ruth's story

Meet 55-year-old Ruth from Suhum, in the Eastern Region of Ghana. She has four children who are all currently in school.

Ruth runs a small restaurant business, popular known as “chop bar”. She sells local foods, such as banku, fufu, and rice balls, to her customers within the community. She serves her customers mostly at lunch and dinner. She has been in this business for the past 28 years now and works six days in a week.

Ruth is requesting a loan from Advans Ghana to purchase ingredients; fish, meat, oil, tomatoes and okro, among others. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve the life of her family and educate her children. In the future, she wants her business to expand into a big restaurant. She says thank you to Advans Ghana and the Kiva community for their support.
