Aba cooks "banku" (a local dish made from corn dough) for sale and serves it with fried fish, pepper, and tomato sauce. She is a widow and has four children. Aba has been in this business for six years now. She uses her income to support her husband with the general upkeep of her family. Her loan will be used to purchase bags of maize and fish, which she uses in preparing her banku to sell. She hopes to use the new profits from her business to mount a better stall for the sale of her cooked banku and fish.
