Akosua is divorced and has 6 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, she is a successful businesswoman. She sells cooked rice and vegetable stew in Bremang (near Cape Coast). She has been actively involved in this business for some years now. As the sole breadwinner in the family, she uses her income to provide for the entire family.
Akosua will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of rice and vegetables, thus helping her improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, she plans to further diversify the types of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
