Ajaratu is a 52-year-old woman. She is married and is the mother of six children. Three are currently in school and the rest are working.
Ajaratu is a food vendor and serves food like waakye. Waakye is prepared from local rice mixed with beans. Many Ghanaians enjoy it as it has local taste and is a standard. She has been in food production for 35 years now in taking care of the family.
Ajaratu says demand for food is on the higher side but she does not have adequate funds for expansion. She wants to use the loan to buy meat and rice to increase her efficiency by producing in larger quantities. She believes this will help expand her business to raise more income to support her children’s educational needs. She would be grateful for the assistance.
