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

A loan helped to launch a venture in liquid and bar soap production.

Nafisah's story

Nafisah is a 25-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents and three siblings in the Garu Tempane district of Ghana.

She is requesting a Kiva loan to launch a venture in liquid and bar soap production. She plans to reinvest the profit she earns in her business to help it grow.

To repay the ‘social interest’ on her loan, she will volunteer two and a half hours per week as a CAMFED Transition Guide, delivering an orientation course to young women who have recently completed secondary school to help them transition into a secure adulthood. The course provides peer support and life skills instruction covering goal setting, reproductive health information, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and community leadership.

Nafisah also intends to donate some of her products (soap) to school children and vulnerable people in nearby communities.
