Academic Group's story

Eyi is the featured borrower of the Academic Group. She gets along with the other group members, and held hands when they applied for a loan from Kiva partner ID-Ghana, so that they can fulfill their needs.

Eyi is a 34-year-old single mother of two children. Ten years ago, she started working at her house, selling fruits and cereal, to support her children's education and herself. Her incomes isn't enough to cover her children's increasing needs. For this reason, her portion of the requested loan will be invested in buying fresh fruits and cereal that will attract her customers’ attention and increase her income.

Eyi hopes to expand her business in the future, and move to a bigger shop. The other group members are Comfort and Jumai.
