Akosua currently lives with her two children and her husband in a mining community in the central region of Ghana. All her children are in school in the community where they live.
Akosua is 55 years old and very supportive of her family. She trades in Chinese herbal medicines in bulk. She takes her supply of goods from importers in Kumasi and retails them to her customers. She mostly sells through hawking in the market center.
Akosua wants the loan assistance to boost her stock, to raise sales, and to create a substantial profit.
