Rebecca sells large quantities of eggs in a store near the busy Mankessim market. She started the store with $200 of her own money 13 years ago and now her profits are about $200 a week.

Rebecca will use her loan to purchase more eggs and egg containers. She tries to purchase her eggs from the local farms, but sometimes they do not produce enough, so she has to by them from a distributor. Her goal now is to diversify her products, so she does not have to depend on the eggs. She would like to carry chicken feed, pillows, and chop boxes (used for street vendors to store food).

Rebecca is a member of the lending group, Adom Hen. The group guarantees a loan through a group repayment pledge. Peer pressure and support provide the incentive to repay; if one person in the group defaults, the group members make up the payment amount
