Gladys's story

Even though Gladys 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, Gladys is an entrepreneur. She sells cooked rice in Bogyano (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 two children.

Gladys has identified that there is growing demand among consumers 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 rice to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Gladys wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
