Kumasi, Ghana / Food Market

A loan of $400 helped to buy cartons of frozen foods like fish, chicken, mutton, and smoked fish, etc.


Gladys's story

Gladys A. is 33 years old and a divorced woman with two children. Currently both her kids are in school. Gladys has been selling frozen foods like chicken, pork, mutton, fish, etc. in the local market of Apatrapa in the Kumasi for a year now. Through hard work and determination, Gladys is doing well in providing for the basic needs of her kids especially their education. Sometimes getting money to pay her kids' education fees becomes a challenge for her. As a single parent, she is doing all her possible best to cater for her kids through the income from the business she runs.

Gladys does not have adequate funds to support her business. This has affected her operation, especially in the face of increasing food prices in the marketplace. With the loan, she wants to purchase more cartons of frozen foods like fish, chicken, pork, and sausages to enable her to raise enough income to expand her sales. She would be grateful for your support.

Gladys belongs to a village bank called ‘Nyame naye’ which means "Good living". She hopes to receive GHS 500 to make business progress by restocking her inventory.
