A loan of $300 helped to purchase more maize and cassava.

Nana Yaa's story

After graduating from junior high school, Nana Yaa decided to set up her own banku-selling business (banku is 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 prepares her banku on her own and proceeds to sell it in Aburansa (near Cape Coast).

With over four years' worth of experience, Nana Yaa is currently looking to further expand her enterprise. Unfortunately, she is limited, due to a lack of funding. As a result, this loan will be used to help her purchase more maize and cassava, thus enabling her to prepare and sell more of her tasty banku.

She aims to use the profits from her business to help support her husband, who is a farmer, with the upkeep of their house, while ensuring that their four children are able to experience a better life.
