A loan of $275 helped buy tubers of yams and other foodstuffs and vegetables to sell.


Mary's story

Mary is a small trader. She sells foodstuffs like tubers of yams at Nkontrodo near Elmina. Her husband is a driver. They have four dependants.

Mary has been in this business for some time now. She wishes to buy other food items requested by her customers, so a loan from Kiva will be used to buy tubers of yams and other foodstuffs and vegetables to sell.

She hopes to use the new profits to expand her business.
