Ama's story

Ama A. makes a living by selling accessories and sundries in a village called Ntranoa, near the town of Elmina. She has been in this business for 10 years and she sells a collection of items, as shown in the photograph, such as hair clips, buttons and hair bands.

To expand her business and income, she needs the loan to purchase more items for sale. At the moment, she carries her wares around to sell. With her increased profits, she plans to save up to build her own shop someday.
