Gloria is a Nigerian woman married to a Ghanaian government worker. She is based in Cape Coast so that their two boys can attend better schools, while her husband lives in a remote village guarding a national forest. She had their second son during the COVID pandemic and has not been able to fully recover physically. She sells fabrics from Nigeria to supplement their income, but without a shop she must walk all over the city carrying her baby. She recently collapsed from exhaustion and is hoping, with a relatively modest amount of capital, she could open a shop and pay for some help to sell her fabrics. She attended university in Nigeria, but has found it difficult to find work in Ghana as she is less fluent in the local language; hence she has decided to sell quality fabrics. The funds would help her rent a small shop, hire a worker and buy a larger amount of stock at a lower price to increase her profits. This would significantly improve her quality of life and allow her to take better care of her children, as she does not have any local family support. Gloria is extremely grateful for any help you could provide.
100% of funds will be transferred from the U.K. to Gloria, once the crowdfunding is hopefully successful.
