Although she has received no formal education, Esther is an entrepreneur. She specializes in selling groceries in Besease (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in this enterprise for 10 years.
Esther is married and has 5 children. Her husband works as a famer. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.
Esther wants to use her loan to increase her current inventory levels, hence allowing her to sell greater quantities of groceries. In the long term, Esther plans to reinvest future profits into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the challenge of rising customer demand.
