Stella's story

Stella lives and works at the busy town of Asamankese, near the town of Suhum. She has two children, both of whom attend school. She knows that for her children to have a great education and opportunities in life, she needs to work hard at her business. For the past 20 years, Stella has traded in tubers of yam for a living. One of her biggest challenges is inadequate capital to buy in large quantities to enjoy economy of scale.

Stella requested a loan, which she will use to purchase larger quantities of yams when she goes for supplies. Her goal is to not only keep her current clients, but to grow to become a bigger wholesaler of yams. Stella knows that by working to grow her business, she will help ensure many opportunities for her children’s and family’s future.
