Yakubu
Yakubu A. is a trader at Moree Junction near Cape Coast. He sells provisions such as milk, milo, frytol cooking oil, oats, Pepsodent, tape batteries, bulbs, Dettol, and cheese. He is married with two children ages 9 and 5 years. His wife is also a trader who manages another store owned by her husband.


Yakubu is a hardworking man. He also sells groundnut, maize, beans, and yams. He brings them from the northern part of the country and supplies them to some junior and senior high schools within and outside Cape Coast. He is a well-known trader. He also sells cosmetics, mineral water, and minerals such as Coca Cola, Malta, and Fanta.


One major challenge that Yakubu faces is the high cost of transportation from the northern part of the country to supply his customers. He is therefore asking for a loan of US $1,200 to enable him to pay for the high cost of transportation and bring in more food such as maize, yam, groundnut, and sweet potatoes to supply to the junior and senior high schools. He also wants to buy more creams and body lotions to fill his cosmetics store.
