Nafisah's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase more cereal crops, like maize, shea nuts, and cashews in bulk for resale.


Nafisah's story

Nafisah is a 28-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the West Mamprusi district in Ghana. She is a shea nut, maize, and cashew saleswoman.

With her previous Kiva loans, Nafisah launched and sustained her business and used the profits she earned to support her family. She is now requesting another loan to purchase more cereal crops, like maize, shea nuts and cashews in bulk for resale.

She plans to use the profit she earns to develop her school, Blessed Child Nursery and KG. She will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering two-and-a-half hours each week as a CAMFED peer educator, leading life skills sessions for students in local schools. She will cover topics such as rights and choices, choosing a career path, and active citizenship.
