Ekua
Although she has received no formal education, Ekua is an entrepreneur. She sells kenkey (a traditional corn-based dish that is wrapped in banana leaves) in Akonoma (near Cape Coast). She has been selling kenkey for three years.

As a single mother having to raise four children, Ekua is responsible for supporting the entire family. Her loan will be used to buy more maize, henceforth allowing her to produce more kenkey to sell.

Ekua hopes to use the new profits from her business to develop her kenkey enterprise further.

Important Information About CRAN

Please note that Kiva considers loans to this Field Partner, CRAN, to be particularly HIGH RISK. This organization has had very serious delinquency problems brought about by problems with its credit methodology, local environmental shocks including a depletion of local fisheries in its core area of operation (Cape Coast and the Central Province), and insufficient follow up with late clients. Lenders to this business should be aware that there is an increased risk of not getting repaid on this loan due to the challenges facing the Field Partner.

CRAN's creditors - including Kiva - have entered into a new Restructuring Agreement (For more information, please see CRAN's Field Partner profile: http://www.kiva.org/partners/91 ). Kiva will extend its ongoing policy of allowing CRAN to continue to raise funds on the Kiva website. New funds raised will be used to make repayments on older CRAN loans via Kiva’s standard net billing process.
