Gladys N. started her business three years ago in the village where she lives with her family. Gladys is a food vendor and she prepares and serves what we call ‘obrayo’ (porridge) and "baflot" in a community school. Obrayo is prepared from dried maize; this maize is soaked in water for about three days before it is ground, but not too fine. This food (porridge) is just like any other porridge but with this one you feel the maize whilst enjoying it. Obrayo can be taking with bread or "baflot". It can be taken either as breakfast or lunch and it is purely carbohydrate food.

Gladys is married with three kids who are currently in school. Through her excellent food standards and moderate prices she has attracted many customers. She is requesting a loan to buy more bags of maize, sugar, milk, flour, margarine, charcoal, etc. so that she can remain in business. Gladys belongs to a village bank called ‘Naomi’. She hopes to receive GHS 700 to make business progress. And she would be grateful for your support.
