Dora A. is a widow and the mother with five children. One of her children is in the training college, while the rest are in the senior and junior high school. She lives with her family at Wasa Simpa in the western region of Ghana. She is 52 years old. She has sold children's wears, like shirts, straight dress, napkins and skirts, underwear, slippers, and dressing bags for over nine years.

She is, however, constrained by funds in running the business. She needs a loan to inject more working capital into the business in order to scale up business progress. She believes the loan will help her to be more resourced. She would be able to purchase a large quantity of high quality goods, upgrading her inventory. She would also be able to cater for the children in school.

Dora says she would be grateful for that assistance. She belongs to a village bank called "Me Hwe Awuarde" which means "Am looking up to God." She also hope to receive GH¢500 to make business progress by restocking her inventory.
