Martin's story

Martin is 34 years old and lives with his child near Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital of Ghana.

For 13 years, he's run a shop selling phones and phone accessories. He also sells e-cash. His goal has been to help his neighbors get easy access to e-cash, mobile phones and their accessories without traveling long distances. The town has been growing a bit, and Martin needs to increase his working capital to get more stock in the shop.

He's approached Advans for a loan to enable him buy varied stocks of phones and e-cash to meet growing demands of his customers. He looks forward to expanding the business with his profits. Martin thanks the Kiva community for helping him grow his business!
