Yaa A. is married to a farmer and they have seven children. Yaa sells palm oil in Abrafo, a village near Abura. She first purchases palm fruit (shown in the picture) and boils the fruit to extract the oil, which she then sells.

Yaa is keen to grow her business and will use the loan to purchase more palm fruit so that she can extract more oil for sale. She plans to save up the additional profits to buy a piece of land for her family some day.
