Faustina Serwaa is 26 years old. She is divorced and has given birth to one child. She currently lives with her daughter who is in school in the community where they live. She lives at Dorma Ahenkro in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. She sells bags of maize and groundnuts.

Faustina has been in this business for over two years now. She goes and gets maize from the remote areas because she feels those areas are cheaper. She treks to Kumasi and Accra to sell it. She buys her goods from the farmers just to avoid middlemen. She says she sells at the market square sometimes.

Faustina wants a loan to increase her working capital so that her dream of buying goods in bulk can be achieved. In this way, she can supply to a large number of customers to increase her market size, hence, her profit. She is hoping to receive a loan from you for a business upgrade.
