Although she has received no prior formal education, Veronica is an entrepreneur. She specializes in selling cooking ingredients in Aburaman Nkwanta (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in this enterprise for five years. Veronica is married and has three children. Her husband works as a driver. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.
Veronica wants to use her loan to increase her current inventory levels, hence allowing her to sell greater quantities of cooking ingredients. In the long term, Veronica plans to reinvest future profits into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
