Mary is married and a mother with four children. She is a 38-year-old petty trader and her husband is also a petty trader. All her children are in school. She sells lace materials, textiles and clothing materials. She takes her stock of goods from importers in Kumasi central market. Lace material is very useful in room and office decorations. For lack of adequate working capital, she buys only a little lace materials and sells through hawking. She sells during the markets days in the surrounding market communities.

She believes the loan will enable her to grow her business to the expected level. With the loan, she wants to purchase bulk quantities of lace materials and textiles. She hopes to use part of her profit to rent a store and also save the larger part for the children's education.
