Even though Fante grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for herself and her family. Fante is an entrepreneur. She sells palm oil in Yabiw (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 20 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their five children. Fante has identified growing demand among her customers for her product. She is unable to meet their needs because of her limited inventory. She aims to use her loan to buy more palm fruit. With the new profit from her expanded business, Fante wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to put further distance between their family and poverty.
