Ayishetu's story

Meet 45-year-old Ayishetu from Suhum in the Eastern Region of Ghana. She has three children, with two of them currently in school.

Ayishetu's porridge is made from millet and other spices, locally known as “koko”. This is a common breakfast delicacy for most Ghanaians, irrespective of the region they find themselves in. As a source of income for the family, Ayishetu has been making porridge for the past 20 years and has employed three assistants who help with the preparation and sale of the food. She has a lot of customers who hardly miss buying from her every morning. This is because of the nice taste and very good customer service they receive anytime they visit her stand for a cup of the porridge.

Ayishetu is requesting a loan from Advans Ghana to purchase stocks of the ingredients, mostly bags of millet and other spices. She says that the extra income from this loan will help improve the life of her family and educate her children.

Her intention is to plough her profits back into the business.

She says thank you to Advans Ghana and the Kiva community for their support.
