Aya

Ghana
Abura, Ghana / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $275 helped to purchase more cassava, allowing her to produce more FuFu (a local dish) to sell.


Aya's story

Even though Aya 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, Aya is an entrepreneur. She sells FuFu (a local dish) in Wiomoah (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 10 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their four children.

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