Victoria's story

Victoria G. is thirty-five years old. She is a wife and mother of three children, all in primary school. She lives at Bawalashie community, a suburb of Accra, Ghana. She is a trader and sells groceries like toiletries, soaps, candies, biscuits, and soft drinks. She has been in this business for the past three years.

As a mother, Victoria works hard to support her husband in taking care of their children. Her husband is a taxi driver and they both work hard to sustain the family. She buys the groceries from Accra central market. She also orders the drinks directly from the manufacturers in Accra at wholesale prices. She operates her business in a kiosk in front of her rented apartment.

With this loan, she wants to purchase groceries and drinks in bulk to avoid the price hikes that constantly reduce her profit. She believes the loan funds would enable her to improve her income and save more to support her family, especially her kids’ education.
