Diana's story

Diana O. is married and has 2 children. She has received a junior high education and is responsible for taking care of her family's basic needs. Her husband is a fisherman.

Diana started her business not long ago. She sells foodstuffs such as rice and gari. Gari is made out of cassava only; the cassava is milled into dough and then the starch is extracted to reduce the starch content. The dough is then fried into gari, which is very popular in the country. Diana also prepares other food for sale. She does her business at Elmina.

Diana will use her loan to buy raw cassava for the production of gari and also to increase her rice sales. She hopes to save the new profits from her business for reinvestment.
