Ama
Due to difficult circumstances Ama did not have access to any form of formal education. However, this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

Currently, Ama prepares and sells ‘Gari’ (a traditional Ghanaian snack that is made from starched powdered cassava) in her village of Ekumfi-Twa (near the Cape Coast). Alongside her gari she also sells soft drinks as well. She has been doing so for about 5 years.

She is married to a farmer, and together they have 6 children. Ama uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. Ama will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of cassava and soft drinks, which will aid her in improving her overall sales. Ama wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
