Esi
For the past 2 years, Esi has been selling kenkey (a popular Ghanaian staple made from fermented maize dough, usually eaten with pepper sauce and fried fish) in Abura near Brasi. She is a widow with 9 dependents, and the money she earns from her sales is used to take care of them. Her loan will be used to buy maize, pepper, tomatoes, corn husks and other ingredients to expand her business. She hopes to use the new profits from her business to build a food joint. At the time of the visit, Esi had finished selling for the day and is showing the pan in which she sells the kenkey.
