Amamatu I., 52, has six children – three girls and three boys – one of whom is married while the rest are in senior high and basic school. She lives with her husband, a farmer cultivating palm nuts, plantain and maize, and some of her children in a rented apartment in Koforidua, a small business and farming community near Offinso in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

For over 20 years, Amamatu has traded in maize, purchasing it from farmers in her community and surrounding towns and trekking to markets to sell it. She is requesting a loan to procure maize in bulk, hoping to save enough to help her husband put up a building of their own and sponsor the rest of their children’s education through to the university level.
