Adjoa N. sells oil made from the kernels of the palm fruit in Abrafo near Abura.
Adjoa has a junior high school education. She is married and has five children. Her husband is a security officer.
Adjoa has been selling palm-kernel oil for the past three years. She is responsible for paying for groceries and other utilities. She also supports her husband in paying the school fees for their children.
Her loan will be used to buy a larger amount of the palm-fruit kernels needed to prepare the oil. Her hope is to create a larger and more consistent income. She hopes to use the new profits from her business to make sure her children receive the best education possible. She is also aiming for further expansion of her business and will therefore reinvest some of the money she makes back into it.
