Mercy
Mercy Yomekpe is 33 years old and is a married woman with two children. One of her children is in school whilst the last born is still breastfeeding. Mercy has been selling frozen foods like chicken, pork, mutton, fish, etc. in the local market of Accra for six years. She does not have adequate funds to support her business. Meanwhile, demand for her product is on the higher side. This has affected her operation, especially in the face of increasing food prices.



With the loan, she wants to purchase more cartons of frozen foods like fish, chicken, pork, and sausages to enable her to raise enough income to expand her sales. She belongs to a village bank called "Yayra" which means Blessing. She hopes to receive GHS 500 to make business progress by restocking her inventory.
