Efua is the lady pounding fufu (a thick snack paste) in the picture. She operates a chop bar (a place where a variety of African dishes are sold) and she has done this the last two years.
The foods she serves are fufu, banku (fermented dough) and rice balls. She is married with two children. Efua uses her income to support her husband to pay their children’s school fees. She will use her loan to purchase food and other ingredients to prepare food for sale. With the new profits, Efua plans to operate a restaurant.
