Afia A. is married to a farmer, and they have two children. Educated up to junior high school, Afia has spent the past six years selling kenkey, a staple in the Ghanaian diet made of fermented maize dough, in the Jukwa Market (near Abura in Cape Coast).
Afia’s family relies on her income to pay for school fees and household utilities. She is keen to expand her business with the loan, which she’ll use to purchase more maize to increase the production of kenkey. She plans to save up the extra profits she makes.
