Akua's story

Akua A. is twenty-eight years old. She is married and blessed with three children. Currently, they are all pursuing education in primary school. She lives with her family in a house in a town called Akim Oda, a farming community in the Eastern Region of Ghana. She works with zeal as a resourceful mother to support her family and provide for the children's schooling.

She is a fish monger and sells all kinds of fresh and smoked fishes. She sells in a shed in the local market square. She procures her stock of fish from big time fish mongers in Mankessim town, who sell at wholesale prices. She has been in business for eight years. According to Akua, most of her customers are food vendors in her community.

She believes the loan assistance would enable her to buy tilapia and assorted fishes in bulk to serve a larger market and eventually help improve her family finances. She is a member of a Trust Bank group called Zion Trust Group. Members in this group guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and support themselves in handling repayment of the loan.
