A loan of $525 helped to purchase more charcoal to sell.

Abena's story

Even though Abena grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Currently, Abena is an entrepreneur. She sells charcoal in Abura Edukrom (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began eight years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their four children.

Abena has identified that there are growing demands among consumers’ for her product. Nevertheless she is unable to meet their needs due to her limited inventory capacity. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more charcoal to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Abena wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
