Hannah has been selling gari (milled and roasted cassava), salt, maize and earthenware bowls in Mankessim for the past eight years. She is thirty-four years and a mother of three children. Her children are all currently in school.
Hannah wants to use her loan to purchase more maize, gari and earthenware bowls for the lean season. This would enable her to avoid price hikes which affect the other products she sells.
She is a member of the group called Lamb of God. Group members agree to take responsibility for the loans of their peers, which serves as social collateral for the loan.
