Mary's story

Mary E. is married and has 3 children. She has received schooling through primary education. Her husband is a fisherman.

Mary sells meat, fish, and "gari" (a delicacy made out of cassava which is pictured in the photograph with Mary) at Seaview near Elmina, which she has done since 2004. By doing so, Mary supports her husband in paying utility bills and other basic living expenses of the family. Mary is now requesting a loan to purchase more meat and fish so that she can satisfy her customers' increasing demands. With the expected profits from her expanded business, Mary plans to save towards acquiring a piece of land in order to build a house for their family.
