Currently, Araba sells charcoal in Apewosika (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about seven years. She is married to a sanitation official, and together they have five children. Araba uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. Araba will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of charcoal, which will aid her in improving her overall sales.
