Abena has been selling tubers of yam for eight years now to support her family. She treks to farming communities to buy her stock of yam from the farmers. This saves her from intermediaries who buy from the farmers and resell at higher price. She enjoys selling goods – her way of making a living.

Abena is 35 years old. She is a wife and the mother of four children. Currently, three are in school. She wants to use this loan to buy yam in bulk to meet the daily demands of her customers as Christmas festivities approach. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her kids in school and to expand her business to the desired level.
