Aba is a widow and has seven children. She sells kenkey (cooked and fermented maize dough) at Dompoase, near Elmina, which she has done for one year. Aba uses her income to pay for her children’s school fees and other household expenses, such as bills and food. Aba will use this loan to purchase maize and other ingredients for her kenkey. With the new profits, Aba plans to support her family.
