Mavis'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 for sale.

Mavis's story

Mavis is a married woman, who is 60 years old and lives in Asamankese, near the town of Suhum. She has two children.

Mavis has been running her own provisions shop for the past 8 years, selling various 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 her shelves looking empty.

Mavis is thus 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 supporting her business.
