Bernice's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy stocks of food packages for sale.

Bernice's story

Bernice is married, a mother of three children, and is 40 years old. She lives with her husband and children in Suhum, a developing town in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

Her income comes from the sale of disposable products, such as food packs, among others.

She is requesting a loan to buy new stocks of disposable take-away packs in order to add to her goods and expand her business. She is also concerned about the cost of transportation involved in the purchasing of her stock of disposable take-away packs.

Bernice has been selling these disposables for the past 2 years in the local market. If given the loan, Bernice feels empowered to expand her business and be a successful entrepreneur.

Thank you for supporting Bernice.
