Eunice, a 32-year-old seller of Pampers and soft drinks, is single and has no children. Her income is derived solely from the sale of drinks, which has enabled her to take care of herself.
Eunice's main challenge is the inability to buy enough drinks to meet customers' demand. She has therefore applied for a loan of 1,500 GHS (Ghana cedis) from ID-Ghana for this purpose. She will buy Pampers and Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite, Malta and fruit drinks.
Eunice aspires to having the biggest drinking spot in the area within the next two years, and graduating to the distribution of drinks to retailers.
