Salima had nothing. She felt alone and helpless as she struggled to provide for her daughter. Salina has a bad leg and she struggles to walk even with the help from a cane. Because of her condition, no one would hire her. She was surprised to hear that there were these people coming to teach business skills to the women in her village.
She was very curious and determined to learn what Mentors Ghana was all about. Salima was inspired by the training she received and used her first loan to purchase soybeans, rice, and bran. She started selling these from her home so she didn’t have to walk as much.
Slowly, Salima has been seeing the profits of her determination. She is selling out of her inventory. Her daughter now helps every day at Salima’s shop. “God bless the people who brought the mentors to our village;” says Salima.
