A loan of $275 helped to help him purchase more fish for resale.


Kwame's story

After graduating Junior High School, Kwame decided to set up his own fried fish business in Onyaadze (near Cape Coast). With over three years' worth of experience, he is currently looking to expand his enterprise further. Unfortunately, he is limited due to a lack of funding.

As a result, this loan will be used to help him purchase more fish for resale. He aims at using the profits from his business to help support his wife (who is in trading) with the upkeep of their house whilst ensuring that their child is able to experience a better life.
