Mary is in charge of a hair salon. She has a child and lives with her husband who is a taxi driver. She set up the business with the intention of providing for her family and also to support her husband. So far she has seen good results.

Mary is requesting a loan in order to stock her salon with hair products such as hair oil, pomade, wigs, shampoo, etc. This will provide her salon with a wider variety of products and help her to give good service to customers.

Mary's goal is to make all necessary improvements to her business so that it becomes more profitable and provides her family with a larger profit margin. This is her 3rd loan with ID-Ghana and she needs 650 Ghana cedis to buy items for the salon in order to meet the demands of her customers better.
