A loan helped to buy bags of cement and other materials for block molding.


Richard's story

Richard lives and works in Koforidua, in the Eastern Region of Ghana. He is married, and he has three wonderful children, who are in school.

For the past 3 years, Richard has been working to build up his block factory. Many people in the community stop by to make a quick purchase of blocks for construction.

The loan that Richard requested will be used to buy a wider variety of goods, so he will be able to mold more blocks and attract more clients since there is intense competition and he has low capital. He wants to use the profits to continue growing his business.

Richard believes he has the ability to repay the loan. He is thankful to his generous Kiva lenders.
