Let me introduce you to Fati, a resilient and determined mother and entrepreneur from the northern part of Ghana. Prior to her meeting Mentors International, Fati operated a small kiosk where she sold cereals, grains, and various food ingredients. Unfortunately, her business faced numerous challenges due to its small size and inadequate security, making her vulnerable to theft. Despite these hardships, Fati remained steadfast in her commitment to support her husband and provide for their six children.
Fast forward 18 months of mentoring, and Fati’s life has taken a remarkable turn, all thanks to Mentors International and our dedicated mentors that visit her small village. Through their comprehensive mentoring and training program, Fati gained invaluable skills and strategies that propelled her business forward. With her initial loan of $86 USD, Fati wisely invested in increasing her grain inventory, taking advantage of bulk purchases to maximize her profits.
Motivated by her initial achievements, Fati worked tirelessly to accumulate more funds. With her savings, she set out to fulfill her dreams of constructing a larger shop for her business. Today, her vision is on the verge of becoming a reality, as her new shop nears completion with the help of an additional microloan of only $132 USD.
The unwavering support and guidance provided by Mentors International have brought about a remarkable transformation in Fati’s business. She can now afford to provide her family with nutritious food, clothing, and a comfortable shelter.
