Emmanuel A. is a 53-year-old married man and the father of two daughters and three sons. He tells us that two of his children are in the senior high school and the others are in the junior high school. His wife is a hardworking woman who works with him in running his provision store. Emmanuel lives with his wife and children in a rented apartment in a town called Achiase, which is a busy farming and trading community in the eastern region of Ghana.

Emmanuel runs a roadside provision store. He also sells vegetables on a tabletop in front of the shop. He procures his goods from suppliers who come from other areas in vans to distribute goods, and sometimes he travels to bigger towns nearby to make purchases.

Emmanuel has been in business for two years and requests a loan to procure more goods in order to increase his stock. He hopes to give his children the best education he can afford.
