Pockson
Pockson is both a farmer and a driver in Aburansa (near Cape Coast). He has been educated until the end of middle school. He is married and has four children. His wife sells Kenkey for a living (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough that is wrapped in banana leaves). Pockson has been balancing two jobs for five years now. He is responsible for supporting his wife in paying the family's utility bills and their children's school fees. His loan will be used to purchase more fertilizer and fuel, guaranteeing him a higher yield as well as more passengers. He hopes to use the new profits to subsequently grow both his enterprises and increase his capital base. In the long run he especially wants to expand his reach into neighboring villages.
