Many women are violated by their intimate partners and close relatives around the world through different schemes. This study examines the travails of Lola (a serial entrepreneur), who is trying to keep together her family, her enterprise, and her dignity in the face of economic maltreatment by her husband. Financial control is a form of domestic abuse against women, and domestic abuse has repercussions for the individual, family, and a country’s development. The socio-cultural implications around domestic abuse, the available support system, and Lola’s conceived options are further interrogated in the case.
