Ama is the woman scooping soup from the pot. She operates a chop bar (where a variety of African dishes are sold). Ama has worked as a chop bar operator for the past 5 years. There she serves a variety of traditional dishes including fufu, banku and rice balls. She lives together with her husband and 2 children.
Ama uses her income to support her husband and to pay their children’s school fees. She will use her loan to purchase foodstuffs and other ingredients to prepare the dishes she sells. With the new profit, Ama plans to expand her chop bar into a restaurant.
