Adwoa A. is fifty years old and is married with five children who are all in school. She is married to Mr. A. who is a farmer in the community where they live together with the children.

Adwoa works very hard to provide food for her family. She sells used women’s shoes and slippers and sells through hawking: that is, house to house to house selling. She obtains her stock of goods from Kumasi and retails to her customers through hawking.

Adwoa treks to Kumasi every week for her stock and her reason is that she doesn’t have enough money to buy in bulk. Adwoa is therefore requesting your loan support to avoid frequent traveling to Kumasi. With the loan she wants to buy more slippers and shoes to increase her stock. She belongs to the village called ‘Gyedie mu Aba’.
