Posing with pride with her Dog Meet World photo. Hawa is 43-years old and has recently taken out a loan from a microfinance institution in Ghana to expand her business. She sells millet porridge to miners and school-children in her community. Hawa says, “I’m industrious and hard-working. I have four children. I want to be healthy for life. Thank you for giving me a picture of myself that I can give to my children. They will be proud.” DMW thanks Maia for giving her this opportunity to have her picture!
