Ama S. is thirty-two years old and a mother of three children. She is a member of Eagle Women Group (a system through which a group of women co-guarantee to obtain a loan). Through the loan, she started a grocery store six months ago where she sells products like oats and other cereals, hair food, liquid soaps, margarine, toiletries, etc.
Ama is very happy now because she has a livelihood. She will use her next loan to buy more items wholesale to avoid price hikes and to increase the number of customers she can satisfy.
