Married with three children, Comfort is a forty-year-old trader. She has a girl and two boys who are currently in school. She trades in maize cereals. She has been trading for the past fifteen years and has been a good resource for her family. She treks to the farming communities, such as Afram Plains in the eastern region of Ghana, to buy her foodstuffs and then retails them to her customers. She wants to use the loan to buy a larger supply of maize to serve her customers throughout the season, especially in the face of increasing prices due to the current food crisis in the country. This she believes would enable her save more to support her children in school. Comfort belongs to a village bank called ‘Yonko Do’.
