Dora's story

Dora is a small-scale food vendor; she fries yam and fish for sale in Asekie (near Takoradi). She has had some form of formal education, as she is a primary school level graduate. She is married and has three children. Her husband is a driver. Dora has been working as a food vendor for close to 15 years.

As the sole provider in the family, the proceeds from her business normally go towards covering the entire family’s general expenses. She plans on using her loan to purchase an increased quantity of yams, fish and other ingredients, thus allowing her to meet rising customers’ demands. She hopes to use the profits from her enterprise to fulfill her dream of starting a food stand, hence helping her sell from a fixed location in the future.
