She is married with three children who are in school. Two of her children are working while the last born is still breast feeding. Ama T. is a 44 year old trader. She lives with her husband and children in a family house at Twifo Praso.

She wants to use the loan to buy a larger supply of maize, plantains and cocoyam to serve her customers throughout the season, especially in the face of increasing prices due to the current food crisis in the country.
