Baby's story

Forty-two-year old Baby is a resident of Ho, the capital of the Volta Region of Ghana. She is a mother of three children.

For the past 22 years, her source of income has been from the operation of a provision shop in the community. Her neighbors are able to get household consumables from her shop with ease and almost at any time of the day, as she opens her shop very early in the morning, and closes late into the night. She is such a hardworking woman.

She is seeking financial assistance to buy stock for the shop so as to meet the growing demand from her customers.

She looks forward to meeting the family’s financial needs with profits from the business. She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming to her aid.
