A loan of $425 helped to purchase more foodstuffs and other ingredients to prepare more dishes to sell.


Ama's story

Although Ama grew up in poverty without an education, it has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Ama is an entrepreneur who operates a chop bar (where a variety of African dishes are sold) in Whindo, near Takoradi. Her business has grown substantially since she began it eight years ago, and she uses her income to help her husband raise their seven children.



Ama has identified growing demand among consumers for her product but is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory capacity. She has therefore requested this loan to purchase more foodstuffs and other ingredients to prepare more of her dishes to sell. With the new profits from her expanded enterprise, Ama wants to ensure that all of her children will be given the opportunity to further distance themselves and their family from poverty.
