Akuffu is forty years old and the mother of five children. Four of her children are in school. She has been buying beans, rice and groundnuts (peanuts) from the northern part of Ghana. She then travels to Koforidua, the eastern part of Ghana, to sell her products. She travels twice a week to buy her products and it takes her twelve hours to arrive in the north. She therefore wants to use her new loan to buy more bags of beans, groundnuts, and bags of brown rice to avoid price hikes and also to reduce her frequent travel.

She is a member of the group called “Eye Nyame” (meaning it is God). Members agree in principle to guarantee for each other as social collateral to repay the loan. Akuffu’s photo was taken during a group meeting.
