Even though Alberta grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family.

Currently, Alberta is an entrepreneur. She sells cooked rice in Akatakyiwa (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 2 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their lone child. Alberta has identified that there are growing demands among consumers for her product, but she is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory capacity, so she aims to use her loan to purchase more rice to sell.

With the new profits from her expanded business, Alberta wants to buck the trend by ensuring that her child will be given an opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
