Christiana's story

Christiana E. is 45 years old. She is married and has given birth to five kids. Currently, four of her children are in school in the community where they live. She sells porridge in her neighborhood. Porridge is one of the local foods enjoyed popularly 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 hopes to raise 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 and this will prevent her from frequent traveling. She belongs to a village bank called 'Won som' which means 'let all help'.
