Aba

Ghana
Cape Coast, Ghana / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $225 helped to purchase a greater quantity of cassava and maize, thus increasing her current inventory levels.


Aba's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Aba is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling ‘Banku’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made using fermented corn/cassava dough that is mixed proportionally and cooked in hot water into a smooth whitish consistent paste). She usually sells her Banku in Putubiw (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in preparing and selling Banku for 10 years.

Aba is married and has five children. Her husband works as a farmer. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their childrens' school fees.

Aba wants to use her loan to purchase a greater quantity of cassava and maize, thus increasing her current inventory levels. As a result, this will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty Banku. In the long term, Aba plans to reinvest the future profits back into her business, helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
