Adiza's story

Adiza I. is a married woman. She is forty-eight years old and a mother of six children, all male. Four of her children are currently in school. The first two have completed junior high school and are yet to continue. Adiza lives with her husband and children in a town called Offinso in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Her husband is a farmer. He cultivates food crops such as maize, plantains, and vegetables to provide food for the family.

Adiza enjoys trading and has been selling for over fifteen years in the town where she lives. She sells food items like beans, maize, groundnuts, and all kinds of cereals and grains. She buys her goods from the farmers in her locality and the surrounding towns. At times, Adiza travels all the way to the northern part of the country to procure goods at affordable prices. She sells to the people of her locality, most of whom are food vendors. She says she wants to buy the goods in bulk so that she can reach a larger size of the market by trekking to markets in nearby towns. She says this is possible only by increasing her working capital. Basically, this is what she aspires to use the loan for. It is Adiza’s dream to help her husband provide for their children to make it to the tertiary level of school.
