Rose A. is a 65-year-old married mother of six and grandmother of five living in Offinsu, Ghana. For most of her life, Rose has farmed the land, but now her age and health prevents her from performing such hard labor. That's why she has applied for a loan of $725 U.S. dollars to purchase groceries, such as fresh yams, to sell. She also wants to rent a permanent store to protect her products from theft.

Rose is member of a group called St. Anthony. The group guarantees that each member pays off her loan on time.
