A loan of $625 helped to buy clothing items and gari ingredients.

Ama's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Ama is an entrepreneur with multiple businesses. She sells used clothing and also prepares and sells gari, a traditional Ghanaian snack better known to the rest of the world as cuscus. She operates these businesses in Emissakrom, near Cape Coast, and has been involved in both enterprises for about four years.

Ama and her husband, who is a farmer, have five children. The proceeds from her businesses go toward helping her husband to cover the family’s general expenses and to pay their children’s school fees.

Ama plans to use her loan funds to increase her current inventory levels of both clothing items and gari ingredients, hence allowing her to sell greater quantities of both used clothing and gari.

In the long term, Ama plans to reinvest future profits into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
