Maame N. is married and has 6 children. She has no formal education. Maame has been selling palm oil in Abrafo, near Abura, for 4 years. Her husband is a mechanic. Maame uses her income to pay for sending her children to school. This means that she and her husband have to pay for school fees, books and uniforms. Any leftover money is used for the family's sustenance.

Maame will use this loan to purchase larger quantities of palm fruits in order to produce more oil to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Maame plans to provide a solid financial foundation to enable her children to enjoy the best possible education. She will reinvest part of the money in her business and repay the loan.
