Ekua A. runs a chop bar, which is a food stall, in Mfuom, a village near the town of Abura. She sells fish and other food items, including fufu, a starchy Ghanaian staple made from cassava. In the photograph, she is shown preparing fufu.

Married with four children, her income from the chop bar helps pay for her children's school fees and also the household expenses.

Ekua plans to grow her business and requires a loan to purchase more ingredients. This will allow her to expand her menu, which she hopes will keep her existing customers coming back and also attract new ones.

Any extra earnings will be reinvested into her business and the rest saved up for her children’s future.
