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

A loan helped to buy stocks of provisions and sewing accessories for sale.

Fathia's story

Fathia is a married woman, who is 46 years old and lives in Sogakope, near the city of Ho. She has three children currently in school.

Fathia has been running a shop where she sells provisions and sewing accessories. She has been into this activity for the past twenty years, selling these items to those in the community. The challenge she is currently facing is inadequate stocks in the shop to meet the demands of her growing customer base. She is having trouble attracting customers because of her low inventory and empty shelves.

Fathia is requesting for a loan from Advans and is hopeful that Kiva lenders will fund her loan. She is saving her profits to increase her working capital.

She says thank you for coming to her aid.
