Married with no children, Ekua, who was educated through junior high, has been selling kenkey (fermented maize dough) in Emissa Krom, near Cape Coast, for the past three years. Ekua is responsible for helping her husband, a farmer, in paying for household expenses. Whatever she has left, she saves for the future and reinvests in the business.
Her loan will be used to buy more maize for the production of kenkey. She hopes to use the new profits to expand her business.
