Susana Osei-B. is 26 years old. She is not yet married but has given birth to one child, a boy who is currently crawling. According to Susana, the man deceived her that he would marry her, and after putting her in the family way, deserted her. She is now living with her mom and younger siblings in an old family house in a small town called Simpa, a farming community which is a few kilometers from Tarkwa in the Western Region of Ghana.

Susana trades in ripped bananas and roasted groundnuts. She buys unripe bananas from wholesalers in the nearby markets, stores them until they're ripe, and then sells them with roasted groundnuts. She sells at a junction in her community. Ripped bananas and roasted groundnuts are a delicacy many people purchase in the afternoons. Susana has been in business for 3 years. It has been her desire to make enough savings to support herself and her son. She wants a loan to procure bananas in bulk so she can maximize her profit margin.
