George Woode lives with his wife and their four children in Cape Coast, Ghana where he has run a construction supply business for the last five years. He frequently travels to Accra to purchase bags of cement, roofing sheets and other building materials to sell by the roadside in his community. Although he had many customers, George struggled to keep up with customer demand and to earn enough to pay all of his children’s school fees.
George recently joined Opportunity International, and he plans on using his loan to purchase supplies in bulk, which will help him sell to more customers and increase his profits. He hopes that his business will continue to grow so he can save for his children’s futures and give his family a better quality of life.
