Janet O. has been trading in the local market of Berekum in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, where she lives with her family. She is 42 years old, married with three children. Her husband is a trader. She is a busy petty trader who sells tomatoes and other foodstuffs such as beans, onions, peppers, carrots, green peppers and salad leaves on top of table in the market.

Janet does not have sufficient working capital to run the business which retards her business progress. With the loan, she wants to inject more working capital into the business to purchase increased stocks to revive the business. She believes the loan will enable her to purchase good quality stock to upgrade her inventory. She would be grateful for your assistance. Janet belongs to a village bank called ‘Nyame Tumi’ which means ‘God’s Power’. She hopes to receive GHS 800 to make business progress by restocking her inventory.
