Zahara's story

Forty-seven-year-old Zahara is a resident of Tafo, a community in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital of Ghana. She is married and has 4 children.

For the past 21 years now, her source of income is from the operation of a provision shop in the community. Her neighbours are able to get household consumables from her shop with ease and almost at any time of the day, as she opens her shop very early in the morning, and closes late into the night. Zahara is such a hardworking woman. She is seeking financial assistance to buy stocks into the shop so as to meet the growing demands of her customers.

Zahara looks forward to catering for her family with profits from the business. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming into her aid.
