Araba is married and has six children. She specializes in selling cloth in Ohiaba (near Cape Coast), which she has been doing for four years. Her husband works as a fisherman. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.
Araba is requesting a loan, which she will use to increase her current inventory levels, hence allowing her to sell greater quantities of cloth. In the long term, Araba plans to reinvest future profits into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
