Mercy is married to a small scale miner. She uses her income to help her husband pay the household expenses as well as save for a rainy day.
As a Junior high school graduate, Mercy currently sells bread and milo beverage in Mphor (near Takoradi). With over 3 years of experience in this trade, Mercy sees an opportunity to expand her enterprise further. Nevertheless, she does not have the working capital necessary to increase her quantity of stock. Thus her loan will be used to buy more bread and milo, indirectly helping her boost her overall sales.
Mercy wants to make her business self-sustainable as soon as possible. As a result, she plans to channel the new profits from her expanded business back into her enterprise.
