Mary is 33 years old. She is married and the mother of two children. Currently both of them are schooling. She lives at Sefwi in the western region of Ghana. She is a trader who deals with assorted products like cooking utensils and plastic bowls like lunch boxes etc. She mostly sells through hawking, that is house-to-house selling. She has been trading for five years now. She has attracted lots of customers who purchase from her stand. She treks to Kumasi to purchase her stock of goods. Recently she has been facing challenges in her business as a result of inadequate funds to buy stock. She requests a loan to buy more products like cooking utensils etc., which are frequently demanded by her numerous customers. With the loan, she believes she will be more resourced to make lots of profits to build a store and reduce the frequent walking in the street to sell. She is grateful for your assistance.
