Cecilia sells provisions and also operates a chop bar (where a variety of African dishes are sold). She has done this for two years. The food she serves are fufu, banku, meat soup, fish soup, and rice balls. She is married to a miner and has four children. Cecilia uses her income to support her husband to pay their children’s school fees.
She will use her loan to purchase groceries for her shop and maize, cassava, bush meat and other ingredient to prepare the African dishes she sells. With the new profit, Cecilia plans to operate a restaurant.
