At 53 years of age, Mrs. Yawa A. is a very dynamic woman. Married with four (4) children, she is familiar with several activities : the sale of gari (ground cassava), cereals, and other food products. This small business allows her to contribute much to her household expenses. Currently, these expenses have become very high because her husband, already worn out by old age, has become unemployed. In order to increase the size of her business, Mrs. Yawa A. is asking for $900 in financial support, which will serve as a capital base to buy and re-sell products. This will allow her to increase her revenue and improve her family's living conditions.
