Aba is divorced and has 5 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, she is a successful businesswoman. She prepares and sells Kenkey (a traditional Ghanaian staple dish that is made from corn dough and is wrapped in banana leaves) for a living. She normally sells her Kenkey near Cape Coast. She has been actively involved in this business for about 5 years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Aba uses her income to provide for the entire family. She will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of maize, thus aiding her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Aba plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
