Mina is married to a farmer and has nine children. She uses her income to help her husband pay the household expenses as well as save for a rainy day.
As a middle school graduate, Mina currently sells maize and gari in Aburansa (near Cape Coast). With over 2 years of experience in this trade, Mina sees an opportunity to expand her enterprise further. Nevertheless, she does not have the working capital necessary to increase her quantity of stock. Thus, her loan will be used to buy more maize and gari, indirectly helping her to boost her overall sales.
Mina wants to make her business self-sustainable as soon as possible. As a result, she plans to channel the new profits from her expanded business back into her foodstuff enterprise.
