Rosina's story

Rosina is married and has three children. Her husband is a farmer. She deals in the production of local soap in Akpafu, Hohoe, which she has been doing for five years. To prepare her local soap, Rosina burns cocoa pods into ashes and later soaks the ashes in water. She then boils the mixture into a porridge form, adds palm oil, and continues to stir. When it reaches the desired color, she takes it off the fire, allows it to cool, and then molds into various sizes. Rosina is requesting a loan, which she will use to buy palm oil, firewood, cocoa pods, and cooking pot. She hopes to save the new profits from her business towards her old age. She helps her husband in feeding the family and assisting with their children's school fees.
