Ama is 29 years old. She is divorced and is the mother of four children, all of whom are currently in school.

Ama enjoys selling goods, the business from which she makes a living. She has been selling tubers of yam for six years now to support her family. She treks to farming communities to buy her stock of yams from the farmers. This saves her from intermediaries who buy from the farmers and resell to her at a higher price.

Ama wants to use the loan to buy yams in bulk to meet the daily demands of her customers as we approach the Christmas festivities. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her kids in school and to expand business to the desired level. She would be grateful for your assistance.
