42-year-old Elizabeth is married with two children, both currently at school. She lives with her husband, a farmer, and works very hard as a mother to support her family.

For five years, Elizabeth has been a local manufacturer of soap. She combines materials like palm oil, soda powder, cocoa pods, and coconut oil to produce her popular soap called 'Azumah Blows'. However, she is unable to produce large quantities due to lack of funds.

Elizabeth would like to take out a loan to buy more raw materials and processing equipment to scale-up her production. She hopes to increase her income to support her children's education. It is her desire to provide quality education to her children and she would be grateful for your assistance.
