Akua needs a loan to expand her shop even more by selling “lace cloth”. Lace cloth is very popular for making the elegant Ghanaian dresses (called “kaba and sliht” in Twi) that women wear for formal occasions. Akua believes a wider variety of cloth will attract more customers. This will also increase business for the seamstresses in the market.
Back at home, she hopes her son will graduate from high school this year. If he does, she will use the extra income to help send him to university
