Christiana's story

Forty-nine years of age, Christiana is a mother of one and lives in Atonsu, a suburb of Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

She started her business on a very small scale and has been able to scale it up to a larger level. She operates a provision shop, where she sells household consumables such as rice, cooking oil, toothpaste, bottled water, drinks, among others to customers who visit her shop.

Christiana is seeking financial support to increase her stock levels. She plans to buy more stocks of rice, cooking oil, toothpaste, milk, drinks, etc. for her shop. She hopes to increase her revenue with the increase in stocks.

She is grateful in advance to generous Kiva supporters for coming into her aid.
