Akouwa's story

Mrs. Akouwa A. was born on June 13, 1955 in Ghana. She is married with four children to look after. She a very energetic woman and runs a business growing mushrooms. This is a food much valued in cooking and is used in the same way as fish to make sauces. Demand now exceeds supply, but she does not have the financial means to meet customer requirements. This is why she is requesting a loan so that she can buy the tools of her trade and all the elements involved in mushroom growing. The profit will enable her to improve the living conditions of her family.
