Comfort Frimpomaa is a hardworking woman who lives with her husband and four children in Ankaase in the Eastern region of Ghana. Comfort’s husband, who is a trader, helps her take care of the children. While her eldest child is learning a trade as an apprentice, her other children are in school--two in Senior High School and the youngest is in Kindergarten. For the past 13 years, Comfort has sold "Waakye"--a local dish made from rice and beans, usually eaten with a spicy stew--by the roadside in her community. Comfort purchases her ingredients, such as rice, beans, oil, and other vegetables, in bulk from a nearby town. Over the years, her business has attracted many customers. She now plans to expand her business by acquiring a loan to purchase more ingredients in bulk. Comfort hopes this will allow her to increase her sales and better provide for her family.
