Lydia Sosu lives in Techiman, Ghana, with her husband and their three children. Lydia's husband sells car tires, and all three children attend school. To contribute to the family's income, Lydia operates multiple small businesses. For a while, she sold dried fish and secondhand clothing, but despite her creativity, she was not earning enough to provide for her family's daily needs. Lydia had ideas for more expensive products she could sell, such as home appliances, but she needed financial help to realize her dreams. Lydia's sister recommended she partner with Opportunity International, and everything began to change. After completing financial literacy training, Lydia received a loan, which she used to expand her product selection. Lydia has grown her business into a successful venture that she hopes can become national in scope. Her dream is to earn enough money to start an orphanage for needy children. The financial assistance she receives is having a multiplier effect, and she is grateful for her entrepreneurial success.
