A loan of $300 helped to purchase more bread, thus allowing her to meet the rising customers demands.


Adwowa's story

Adwowa is a small scale baker who bakes bread and sells it in Wakrom (near Cape Coast). She has had some form of formal education as she is a primary graduate. She is married and has 6 children. Her husband is a farmer.

Adwowa has been working as a baker for close to 8 years. Her income is used to help her husband pay the utility bills and their children’s school fees.

She plans on using her loan to purchase an increased quantity of bread, thus allowing her to meet the rising customers demands.

She hopes to use the profits from her enterprise to fulfill her dream of buying a bread stand, hence helping her sell from a fixed location in the future.
