Ama's story

Ama A. is 50 years old. She is divorced, with four children. All her children go to school. She lives with her family at Eguase in the central region of Ghana. For the past 23 years, Ama has been baking bread for sale. In spite of the challenges, Ama is making business progress.

She says she gives best value for money by making sure that her food quality meets her customer’s expectation. But her sales have fallen because of lack of capital to buy raw materials. Ama says prices of commodities are rising, making it difficult to buy more raw materials to make enough bread to meet high daily demand. She says she bakes at most 550 loaves of bread in a day.

Ama needs the loan to buy more bags of flour, sugar, margarine, milk and firewood etc. She says assistance would be very welcome. Ama belongs to a village bank called ‘Independence’.
