Diana is twenty-five years old and a mother of one child. She sells both fresh and fried yams in her village, and has done so for the past five years. She travels to Takyiman, in the northern part of Ghana, to buy the fresh yams and then resells them to people who needs them. She also fries some for children to buy.

Diana has run out of stock, so she wants to use her new loan to buy more tubers of fresh yams from Takyiman to avoid price hikes and for the lean season.

She is member of the group called Humility. Group members use peer pressure as social collateral to repay the loan.
