Mary started selling fish six years ago in her neighborhood. She takes delivery of fishes from Yeji, in the eastern region of Ghana. Because she stocks tasty and good quality fish, many customers buy from her stand. Mary is 46 years old, married, and she has six children. She is currently taking care of four children who are in school; the other two are working.

Mary plans to use the loan to buy an increased stock of assorted fish to make more sales and income to support her children’s education and to grow her business. She would be grateful for the assistance.
