Even though Patience grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family.
Currently, Patience is an entrepreneur. She sells bread in Adentem (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began three years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their one child.
Patience has identified that there are growing demands among customers for her product. Nevertheless, she is unable to meet their needs, due to limited inventory capacity. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more bread to sell.
With the new profits from her expanded business, Patience wants to buck the trend by ensuring that her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
