Grace M. is 38 years old and married. She has given birth to three kids. Currently all are in school in the community where they live. She sells porridge in her neighborhood. Porridge is one of the local foods enjoyed as breakfast by almost all Ghanaians. It is prepared from milled maize or millet grains, boiled and taken with sugar, milk and bread, or taken with what we called 'Kose'. 'Kose' is prepared from milled beans and it is fried with cooking oil so in just about 20 minutes it is ready to be served with the porridge.

With a large customer base, she wants to use the loan to buy more raw materials like bags of maize, millet, beans, sugar and milk to increase production. She also wants to upgrade her lingerie sales. She hopes to earn a good income to support her kids in school. She treks to Tachiman in the Brong Ahafo region to buy her supply of goods. With the loan, she believes she can buy more from the farmers which will prevent her from having to travel frequently.
