Damata's story

Damata is a 23-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her family in the Bawku West District in Ghana.

With her previous Kiva loan, she was able to launch and sustain her grocery shop. She used the profit she earned to pay her school fees.

Now Damata is requesting another loan to increase the size and range of her inventory. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family's basic needs.

Damata will repay the "social interest" on her loan by volunteering two-and-a-half hours per week as a Kiva Loan Coordinator, using her expertise to mentor and support fellow CAMA, CAMFED Alumnae Association, borrowers in her community to complete repayment of their loans.
