S. Johnson has been trading in the local market of Moore, in the central region of Ghana, where she stays with her family. She is 28 years old married with two children who attend school. Her husband is a trader. S. is a busy petty trader who sells tomatoes and other food stuff like beans, onions, pepper, carrots, green pepper and cassava, plantains on top of table in the community market. She strives very hard to make ends meet for her family. She treks to the northern part of Ghana to buy her food stuffs and has been in business for four years now.

S. does not have sufficient working capital to run the business which slows her business progress. With the loan, she wants to inject more working capital into the business to purchase increased stock to revive the business. She believes the loan will enable her to purchase good quality stock to upgrade her inventory.

She would be grateful for assistance. S. belongs to a village bank called ‘Akukudrofo’ which means ‘Brave people.’.
