Comfort is single but has two children. She owns a cement house that has electricity. Her greatest monthly expense is food for her family.
For the past two years, Comfort has operated a 'kenkey' (boiled corn paste) and fish selling business. She sells to her neighbors and passersby. Her major challenge is the high cost of corn, which is used to prepare the 'kenkey."
With the GHS 1400, Comfort wants to purchase corn and fish. She decided to join ID Ghana to access loans to boost her business and improve her living standards.
