Livelihood pending applicant: Rebecca Quaye

Rebecca lives in Nsumea, near Doboro. She sells Waakye, a traditional Ghanaian dish made with fried rice and beans. She has a stand in town and would like to expand her business by buying more ingredients in bulk.

This will allow her to offer meat and fish along with her Waakye, as well as cutting costs by buying in bulk. She has asked AFAWI for a loan of 1000GHC.
