Afia K. is fifty-five years old. She is married and gave birth to seven children. Unfortunately, almost all Afia’s children are no more. She is left with one girl who has completed junior high school. Her husband is a farmer who cultivates cocoa and foodstuffs such as cassava and also vegetables.

Afia sells fried fish to make some income. She says she buys fresh fish and fries it herself. She supplies the fried fish mostly to food vendors in her community. According to her, the food vendors find it more convenient and affordable buying fried fish rather than frying it themselves.

Afia owns a fridge in which she stores the fresh fish she procures. She buys from big cold storage places in the nearby cities like Kumasi. She has been in business for four years. Afia wants a loan to procure fresh fish in bulk so she can distribute to more customers. She hopes to make enough savings to pay the costs for her daughter to climb the academic ladder.
