Efua's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase rice to make and sell more porridge.
Efua grew up in poverty without an education but this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Currently, she is an entrepreneur who sells rice porridge in Esiam, near Cape Coast. Her business has grown substantially since she started a number of years ago. Efua uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their child. She has identified growing customer demand but is unable to meet it due to her limited inventory capacity. Efua is requesting a loan to purchase more rice to make and sell more rice porridge. With the profits from her loan, she wants to buck the trend by ensuring that her child will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
