A loan helped to buy varied stocks of dried and smoked fish to sell.


Mary's story

Mary is 50 years old and married with one child, who is currently schooling. She lives in Koforidua with the family. After 20 years, Mary still runs her dried and smoked fish retail business with lots of joy.

She currently needs money to expand the business and has approached Advans Ghana for a loan. She will use the loan to purchase varied stocks of dried and smoked fish for resale. With an anticipated income, she will be able to expand her business, take care of the family as well as pay back her loan.

Mary's hope and dream for the future is to operate a large-scale fish business and improve her living standard.

She is grateful to generous Kiva lenders for their support.
