Efua is married and has six children. She sells jewelry and fante kenkey (a foodstuff made from fermented maize dough) at Elmina. Her husband is a sprayer. Efua assists her husband with the income she makes from her sales by providing food for the family. The loan when received will be invested into the fante kenkey business by buying more bags of maize. Her future plan is to build a restaurant. Close to Efua in the photo are some dried plantain leaves for the kenkey. In the bowl of water is the soaked maize that will be milled into dough.
