Mary's story

Mary A. is 48 years old. She is married and the mother of four children. Two of them are currently independent but the others are pursuing education in the senior high school. She lives with her children in a rented apartment in a farming community called Oda in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

Being a resourceful mother, Mary works assiduously to support her husband in providing for the family, especially the kids' schooling. Mary is a petty trader. She deals in all kinds of bottled and canned soft drinks: malt, Fanta, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, etc. She procures the drinks from wholesale dealers in the national capital of Accra and sells in the community market.

She has been in this very business for the past seven years and wants a loan to procure assorted drinks in bulk. She believes the loan assistance would enable her to make timely delivery of stock to serve a larger market and eventually help improve her family finances.
