kiva loan to Lydia
I made a loan today to Lydia Kwakye-Boateng in Wiawso, Ghana. Lydia is my sister's name.
Lydia Kwakye-Boateng is thirty-eight years old. She is divorced and has given birth to one child, a girl, who is currently in the primary school. She lives with her daughter in a rented apartment in a commercial town called Dwenase in the Western Region. Dwenase is a suburb of Sefwi-Wiawso, the district capital.
Lydia is a food vendor. She prepares and sells rice and stew. She sells on a table at the lorry (truck) station in the mornings. She buys her goods from nearby communities and wants a loan to buy bags of rice and other ingredients in bulk. Lydia has been in business for ten years. She aspires to expand her business and give her child a good education.
