Philipa B. is truly a hard worker. She is 24 years old and sells bales of empty sacks and ropes to customers in the busy Central Market of Kumasi. Philipa has been operating her business for seven years and is excited to be taking out this loan. She plans to add to her stock of empty sacks, ropes and jute to meet customer demand.
Philipa is married to a trader who sells televisions and DVDs. They have one child who is just 6 months old. As Philipa looks to her future, she says that she dreams of being able to generate enough profits that she will be able to educate her children to at least the tertiary school level.
Philipa knows hardship, and is confident that she will continue to persevere no matter what challenges she faces. During her third loan cycle from Sinapi Aba Trust, Philipa’s business premises burned down. She was able to recover and pay back the loan well with extra hard work. Now requesting her fourth loan, Philipa is excited about what the future may bring.
