Abena, 48 years old, is married and the mother of six children. The two eldest children are now living independently but the others are pursuing education in the senior high school. She lives with her children in a rented apartment in a farming community in the Ashanti region of Ghana.

Being a resourceful mother, Abena works assiduously to help her husband provide for the family, especially in provision of food and payment of bills. She works as a petty trader, dealing in all kinds of bottled and canned soft drinks, such as malt, Fanta, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi. She procures these drinks from the wholesale dealers in the national capital, Accra, and sells them in the community market.

She has been in this business for the past seven years and is requesting a loan to procure assorted drinks in bulk. She believes the loan assistance will enable her to make timely deliveries of stock to serve a larger market, hoping to eventually help improve her family finances.
