Efua is married to a farmer; she has five children. She uses her income to help her husband pay the household expenses, as well as to save for a rainy day.
A junior high school graduate, she currently sells soft drinks, cooked rice and stew in Kufur (near Cape Coast). With over 20 years of experience in this trade, Efua 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 soft drinks, rice, and other food items to help her boost her overall sales.
Efua wants to make her business self-sustainable as soon as possible. Therefore, she plans to channel the new profits from her expanded business back into her soft drink enterprise.
