For the past 6 years, Maame has been involved in production and sale of plam oil, which is often used in preparing okra soup, red-red, apaparansa and other Ghanaian dishes. She is married and currently taking care of six dependents. Her husband is a hunter. As part of her responsibility she feeds, clothes and educates her children. For some time, Maame has been longing to produce on a larger scale and a loan from kiva will help her make oil in larger quantities for resale. When an additional profit is realized, it will be reinvested back into her business for further growth.
