Aba sells the traditional staple dish kenkey in Nkontrodo near the town of Elmina. Kenkey is a fermented maize dough that is a local favorite of many Ghanaian's. Aba has been selling kenkey for the past three years now.
Aba is a widow and has four children. As a single parent, she is responsible for the general up-keep of her children and so uses her income to support her family and create a comfortable life for them. Whatever she has left, she saves for the future and reinvests in the business.
Her loan will be used to buy maize for her corn dough and other necessary ingredients to produce her kenkey recipe. She hopes to use the new profits to expand her business and meet her customers demands for her tasty dish.
