Lydia

Ghana
Obuasi, Ghana / Food Market

A loan of $725 helped to more bags of “Gari” (milled and fried cassava).


Lydia's story

Lydia is married, and lives with her husband. She sells gari (milled and fried cassava) in the local market. She has been doing so for the past 8 years. She travels to nearby villages in order to purchase more products and sell them to earn income. Lydia would like a loan to ensure that her prices remain stable. Farmers are about to enter the lean season, which would lead to a high price of cassava. Lydia believes that this loan would allow her to support her family and expand her business.

Lydia is a member of a group called Queens. Members support one another in repaying loans.
