Emelia is 23 years old; she is married and the mother of two young boys. They are in school in the community. She dropped out of school as a result of financial challenges but she is working hard to see that her children make it to the expected level. She believes that can be done through hard work and selfless commitment.

Emelia is a petty trader and sells beef. She started the business with a small capital given to her by her husband. She needed extra capital to buy more but when she approached her husband for more, she was denied. Meanwhile her market is doing well, so she is requesting the loan to travel to Kumasi to purchase good quality beef to retail to her customers. She would be grateful for your support.
