Nana Jenet Ama A. sells palm oil at Abrafo, near the town of Abura. She first purchases the palm fruit, then boils it (as shown in the photograph) before extracting the oil. The final product is then sold. She has finished senior high school and has been selling palm oil for four years.
Nana has eight children and is married to a driver. Her income helps pay for household expenses. To provide a meaningful education for her eight children, Nana needs to improve her earnings. She will use the loan to expand her business: she plans to purchase more palm fruit to extract larger quantities of oil for resale. The additional profits will be saved up for education fees for her children.
