Ayishetu Adramani and her husband work tirelessly to give their two children a better life in Koforidua, Ghana. For the past 10 years, Ayishetu has worked as a food vendor to earn a living. Each day, she prepares rice and stew that she sells from a roadside stand. Her business has helped keep her children in school, but since most of her earnings went towards school fees, Ayishetu struggled to sustain her business. She longed to expand her business to increase her profits, but she didn’t have the capital she needed.
Ayishetu found the solution to her business troubles when she joined Opportunity International. She received financial training and a loan, which she used to purchase larger bags of rice and other ingredients in bulk. Now that she has more ingredients, Ayishetu has been able to increase her food production, giving her the means to sell to more customers and greatly increase her profits. She is proud of the thriving business she has built, and now she has hope that she will be able to give her children a quality education while continuing to expand her business.
