Aba N. is forty-six years old. She is married and has five children, three boys and two girls. She says all of them are still in school – junior high and primary schools. Aba’s husband is a farmer, while she is in the palm oil production business. She lives with her husband and children in a rented apartment in a small farming community called Hweakwae in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The major occupation of the residents of this community is farming. The land is rich in nutrients and as a result, is good for farming.

Aba procures palm fruits from the local farmers to prepare the palm oil. She distributes it to customers who come to buy in bulk and retail. She also sells to food vendors in her community. Aba would like a loan to procure palm fruits in bulk so that she can produce the oil in bulk and distribute it to the increasing number of her customers. It is her dream to help her husband give their children the best education they can afford, since it is the best legacy they can leave them.
