Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth A. is married with 9 children. She is 52 years old. She is from Edo State, Nigeria.


Elizabeth sells firewood and cassava. She studied her trade for 6 months. (Cassava is an important food staple because akpu, a local food, is made from cassava. To make akpu, cassava is soaked in water for days. When it is fermented, it is filtered and the resulting content is squeezed, cooked for 30 minutes, and tied in a small nylon for sale.) Elizabeth needs the loan of $600 to buy more cassava and firewood for sale.
