Maame Esi
Maame Esi is married to a mechanic. She uses her income to help her husband pay the household expenses as well as to save for a rainy day. A junior high school graduate, Maame currently sells onions and tubers (yams), in Nyame Bekyere (near Cape Coast).

With over two years of experience in her trade, Maame sees an opportunity to expand her enterprise further. Nevertheless, she does not have the working capital necessary to increase her quantity of stock. Therefore, she will use her loan to buy more onions and tubers, which will indirectly help her boost her overall sales. Maame wants to make her business self-sustaining, as soon as possible. As a result, she plans to channel the new profits from her expanded business back into her enterprise.
