Yaa started her fish business twenty years ago at a community market where she lives. She prepares and serves her customers very tasty fish and for that reason she has many fans. She buys fish from Yeji in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. Yaa is 50 years-old, married and the mother of seven children. Two of her children are in school while the rest live independently. She supports her children from the business proceeds. She depends on that for their food, school bills and sometimes their medical bills. She is asking for a loan in order to increase her stock of assorted fish and therefore to increase her income so that she can support her children's education and the business growth. She hopes to repay the loan on time.
