Patricia Lamisi's story

Patricia Lamisi is a 26-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Builsa North District in Ghana. Patricia operates a business processing and selling rice. She is requesting a Kiva loan to expand her business. She plans to use the profit she earns to reinvest in her business to continue to make it grow.

Patricia will repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan by volunteering two and a half hours per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, facilitating sessions from CAMFED’s My Better World Program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build children’s self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school. She will also conduct home visits to learners at risk of dropping out of school and connect them with the support they need to stay in school.
