Abena M., 49, is the divorced mother of five children, two girls and three boys, two of whom are in school, one in senior high school and the other in the basic level. The rest have completed school and are working. Abena lives with some of her children in a rented apartment in Koforidua, a small town close to Offinso in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

Abena works very hard to provide for her children as a trader in bananas and cassavas. In business for ten years, she buys them from farmers in the area and sells them to local retailers. It is Abena’s desire to save enough money to support the rest of her children in their academics, so she is requesting a loan to procure bananas and cassavas in bulk to maximize her profit margin.
