Aba's story

Aba is married and has 7 children. Her husband is a security man. She buys fresh fish from the market and comes home to fry them for resale at Kukwa. Some kenkey sellers, instead of buying fish to fry themselves, sometimes prefer to buy from people like her to sell with their kenkey. Some kenkey sellers also, because of the stress accompanied with frying of the fish, will to buy from someone like Aba.

Aba also wants to increase her sales by acquiring a loan of GHS 500 (Ghanian Cedi) to be able to meet the demands of her customers. Aba uses her income to assist her husband to feed the family. Aba will use the loan to purchase more fresh fish to fry and sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Aba plans to invest in her children’s education.
