Ekua's story

Ekua B. is a widow. She has four children. As the family’s sole breadwinner, she earns her income by selling food items such as cowpeas (as shown in the photograph). She is keen to expand her business and will use her loan to purchase more cowpeas, ripe plantain and palm oil. She hopes this will increase her sales. Additional profits will be reinvested back into her business. Ekua has been in her current business for the past 2 years and she plies her trade in Besease Village, which is near the fishing town of Elmina.
