Mary's story

Mary N. is a 38-year-old woman. She is married with six kids. Currently two of them have completed high school. To support her family, Mary bakes and sells bread to the working community and at bus stops in Obuasi, a busy mining town in Ghana. She wants to use this loan to buy more flour, margarine, sugar, vegetable oil, etc. to avoid price hikes. She believes the loan will enable her to save more for the kids' education.
