Adwoa is 42 years old and is a local restaurant operator. She is widowed and has four kids and all are currently in school.
Adwoa prepares and sells local food like fufu with bush meat. Fufu is prepared from pounded cassava and plantain, taken with all kinds of soup. With her tasty meals she has attracted lots of customers in the area she serves. Therefore it has become necessary to employ additional hands to assist her in her food-delivering service. That was when we visited her at her local restaurant.
Adwoa says prices of raw materials have gone up significantly and she needs the support of a loan to enable her to meet her production expenditures. With the loan, she wants to purchase more raw materials like baskets of cassava, plantain, meat, fish, vegetables and firewood to prepare her meals. She would be grateful for that assistance.
