A loan of $425 helped to purchase increased amounts of maize and cassava.


Aba's story

Due to difficult circumstances Aba did not have access to any form of formal education, yet this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Currently, Aba prepares and sells ‘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) in her village of Putubiw (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about 10 years. She is married to a farmer, and together they have 5 children. Aba uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. Aba will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of maize and cassava, which will aid her in improving her overall ‘Banku’ sales. Aba wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
