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 sells charcoal and porridge in Asafa (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about 4 years.

As a single mother with 2 children, Aba uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. She will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of charcoal, which will aid her in improving her overall sales. Aba wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
