A loan helped to purchase groceries in larger quantities to increase her profit margin.


Hawawu's story

Hawawu is a 33-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her family in the Bole district of Ghana.

She runs a grocery business. With her previous Kiva loans, Hawawu was able to launch and sustain her grocery business. She reinvested the profit into the business. She is requesting another loan to purchase groceries in larger quantities to increase her profit margin.

She plans to use the profit she earns to pay her children’s school fees and to continue to support her family's basic needs.

She will repay the loan with ‘social interest’ by volunteering two and a half hours per 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. Hawawu's dream is to become a successful businesswoman.
