Matilda's story

Matilda is fifty-two years old. She is married with two children who are currently schooling.

Matilda is a food vendor who sells fufu. Fufu is prepared from cassava and plantain, cooked and pounded together and taken with different kinds of soup. It is a very popular traditional food among the Ashanti tribe of the Ghanaian society. It is enjoyed either as lunch or supper.

Matilda wants to use this loan to buy more raw materials, like bags of maize, meat, fish, vegetables and firewood. She hopes to increase her income to support her children’s education.
