Yaw'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 mirrors and glass frames for sale.

Yaw's story

Yaw is a man with dreams. He lives in Suhum with his wife and their two children.

He is 47 years old, and for the past five years he has run a shop selling mirrors and glass frames. With his good customer service attitude, he always has his customers leave his shop with smiles on their faces.

The problem he has had is that he does not have much money to build up his inventory, so some clients are not able to get what they want.

With the help of Kiva lenders and Advans, Yaw is asking for a loan so he can buy new and different kinds of mirrors and glass frames, growing his business so he can support his family.

Yaw wants to make a difference in people’s lives, and you can help him!
