Mary B. is thirty-eight years of age, married, and currently has no child. She says she lives with her husband in a rented apartment in a very busy commercial town called Goaso in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana.
Mary trades in eggs. She buys crates of eggs from nearby poultry farming communities and sells them on a table at the community market. She also supplies to food vendors in her community and treks to other towns to sell on their market days as well.
Mary has been in business for over fifteen years and wants a loan to procure crates of eggs in bulk. She is hopeful to expand her business and increase her profit margin.
