Yaa's story

Yaa O. is forty-nine years old. She is widowed and has given birth to nine children, six boys and three girls. She says all her daughters are married and live independently. The sons, however, are still in school – junior high and primary school. She lives with some of her children in a family house in a small farming community called Nkwateng in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The major occupation of the inhabitants, the men in particular, is farming. Most of the women, however, are into trading activities and palm oil production. She lost her husband thirteen years ago.

Yaa is into palm oil production. She procures palm fruits from the local farmers and nearby farms to prepare palm oil. She distributes to customers who come to buy in bulk and retail. Yaa wants a loan to procure palm fruits in bulk so that she can produce the oil in bulk and distribute to the increasing number of her customers. She has been in business for eight years and is hopeful to improve her living standard and give her children the best support she can.
