Theresa's story

Theresa is a 26-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband and child in Bawku West district in Ghana. She runs a business selling assorted drinks. With her previous Kiva loan, she started her business. She used the profits she earned to grow the business. Theresa is now requesting another loan to purchase stock in bulk to meet customer demand. She plans to use the profits she earns to support her family's basic needs.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, facilitating classes from CAMFED’s ‘My Better World’ program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build their self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
