As you can see in the picture, Ekua S. sells yams. She does this at the market of Jukwa which is a community near Abura close to Cape Coast. Yams can be prepared in lots of different ways and are very common in Ghana. Ekua is divorced and takes care of her four children by herself. To do this she uses the income from her business.
Sometimes she struggles and wishes to have a more solid financial foundation. That’s why she would be very happy to boost her business with the help of a loan to increase her profit. In order to achieve this goal she is planning to buy more yams and thus sell more. She hopes to be able to take good care of her children with the newly earned profit.
