Akua is 35 years old, married and mother of four children who are currently in school. Akua is a very hard working woman and the family depends on her so much for the family income. She is currently residing at Sefwi Bekwai in the western part of Ghana. She sells pastries like doughnuts in bulk. She prepares them and then sells them by herself through hawking.

Akua has been doing this for nine years. She requests a loan to buy flour, sugar, margarine etc. used to prepare her pastry. She believes this can improve her profit margin within a very short time and repay the loan. She would be grateful for that support.
