Mary is a 51-year-old married woman. Eight years ago she started operating as food vendor (chop bar) where she sells local dishes like 'fufu' (pounded cassava and plantain together) soup, rice and stew, and cooked plantain and stew to support her husband since his income is not sufficient to meet their household expenses alone. She is a mother of three children and is motivated to provide her family with good quality food, clothing and health. Rebecca wants to grow her business so she requested a loan amount of GHS 2000 to buy vegetables, cassava, plantain and kontomere (nutritious leaf), to cook them to meet the increasing demand at her customers. She is expecting a boost in her earnings and dreams of expanding her business in the future
