Yaa's story

Yaa is 46 years old. She is divorced and the mother of three children. Through hard work and self-determination, she has managed to send all her children to school. She is a trader and trades chewing sticks. Chewing sticks are used by many indigenous Ghanaians as a toothbrush and paste. They are very effective in brushing the teeth and contain natural stuff that prevents the teeth from decaying. She takes stock of the sticks from Liberia and supplies them to her loyal customers in the city market of Kumasi in the Ashanti region of Ghana. She deems it a big opportunity to expand her business, as her goods are frequently demanded by customers. With her 30 years of trading experience, she wants to use the loan to buy more sticks so that she can prepare them for chewing.
