Abena is 35 years old. She is married and the mother of four children. All her children are in school currently. She loves selling goods, the business through which she obtains her daily source of livelihood. She has been selling corn and cassava dough for the last two years to support her family.

Corn and cassava dough are favorite staple foods that supply carbohydrate components in diets. Abena takes delivery of stock from farmers who provide her with direct supply. This enables her to avoid intermediaries who buy from the farmers and resell to her at higher prices. With this loan, she wants to buy maize and cassava in bulk to serve her customers. She hopes to use part of her profit to support her business expansion and pay for the children's education.
