Mary is a dealer and supplier of phone cards and phone chips. Her husband is a buyer and seller of gold. Mary is hardworking and very resourceful in the upbringing of the family.

Mary says that the sale of phone credits has become a very lucrative business in Ghana because almost every Ghanaian desires to possess a mobile phone and will definitely recharge their credit. She buys her supplies from agents at wholesale prices and sells to her customers at retail prices.

Mary requests a loan to enable her to procure an increased stock of mobile phone credits. She hopes the loan will enable her to increase her savings and expand her shop, because she currently sells under an umbrella with a table stand. She would be grateful for your support.
