Alima is 35 years old and is the mother of five children. All of her children are in school from primary to junior high level respectively. To support her household, she sells cereals, like beans, maize, millet, rice and groundnuts, in the community market to her loyal customers. She says that sales of these products is very lucrative and the goods move fast. She has been in business for the last eleven years now, and has lots of experience selling. She takes delivery of stock from the farming communities in the northern part of Ghana, and sometimes in the surrounding villages where she lives.
She is requesting this loan to increase her stock as we approach the Christmas festivities. She believes this loan will enable her to make a good income to support her family, especially their education. She would be grateful for your assistance.
