Janet lives with her children in a rented apartment in a fishing community called Aquase, near Cape Coast in the Central Region of Ghana.

Janet is a trader and food vendor. She sells kenkey and trades in other food stuffs such as plantains and potatoes. She prepares kenkey in-house and sells by the road side in the evenings. Kenkey is served hot with pepper and fried fish. It is prepared from maize (corn dough). Janet procures the raw materials – maize, fish, vegetables, etc. from the local market. She says that sometimes she travels to nearby towns to buy at better prices.

Janet has been in business for eight years and wants a loan to procure raw materials in bulk. She is hopeful to give her children the best education she can afford.
