For the past 10 years Esi has been cooking "banku" (fermented dough balls). She serves it with hot pepper sauce and fried fish at Abrafo near Abura. She is married to a farmer and has six children who are currently in school, so she uses her income to help her husband in paying their children’s school fees.
Esi hopes to expand her "banku" business and so needs a loan to enable her to buy maize, peppers, tomatoes, cassava dough and fire wood to make her food production easier. Her future plan is to build a better place to host her customers.
