Abiba's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Abiba is an entrepreneur. She is married with three children and her husband is a farmer. Abiba prepares and sells "gari," a traditional Ghanaian snack made from starched powdered cassava. She can be found selling gari at Ekumfe-Twi, near Cape Coast. She also sells sugar. Abiba has been involved in her businesses for four years and uses the profit from her work to help her husband cover the family's general expenses and pay their children's school fees.

Abiba is requesting a loan to purchase increased amounts of cassava and sugar to enable her to improve her overall sales. With the profits from her expanded businesses, she plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells and adapt to changing customer preferences.
