A loan of $400 helped to get additional gari, charcoal, sugar and other things to sell.


Araba's story

Araba is a single parent taking care of 3 children. She sells gari, charcoal and sugar (her hand is placed on the gari she sells) at Elmina, which she has done for 10 years. She single-handedly feeds, clothes, educates and provides shelter for her family. She wants to increase her business so that she can continue taking care of the family.

A loan from Kiva through CRAN will be used to get additional gari (a basic food staple made from cassava tubers), charcoal, sugar and other things to sell. She plans to reinvest the new profits.
