Update on Agatha

I made a Kiva loan to Agatha, a bread baker in Ghana, in February.  This is the first time Kiva has sent me an update on one of my sponsees.

Agatha makes and sells bread. She has been operating this business for 15 years. Before the loan, Agatha reported she was buying ingredients on credit and the price was very high. However, since the loan, she is now able to buy ingredients at a lower price and her profit has increased.

She is married to supermarket supervisor and together they have 5 children.

Agatha is finishing her 2nd cycle and states she has no real struggles or challenges. She is very proud she has been able to save and buy little things for her house. One day, Agatha will use her savings to support her business.

She is thankful to KIVA for giving her this great opportunity!
