A loan of $250 helped to increase her current stock levels of FuFu ingredients.


Peace's story

Peace operates a local Fufu joint in Ve-Deme (near Hohoe). Fufu (also known as foofoo or foufou) is a paste made from starchy root vegetables put into a mortar and beaten smooth with a pestle until the desired consistency is reached. The malleable dough is served and eaten with a light tomato soup, groundnut soup, palm oil fruit soup or other soups. She has been educated until the end of middle school. She is married and has six children. Her husband is a businessman. Peace has been working in this enterprise for four years now. She is responsible for supporting her husband in paying the family's utility bills and their children's school fees. Her loan will be used to increase her current stock levels of FuFu ingredients.

She hopes to use the new profits from her business to grow her food and hospitality business and increase her capital base. In the long run she wants to expand her business into neighboring villages.
