A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bags of maize to make Fante kenkey to sell.


Efua's story

Fante kenkey is made from fermented corn dough. Efua is into the business of making kenkey. The dried plantain leaves that she is arranging will be used to wrap the dough to boil.

Efia is single and has 8 children. She has been in the kenkey business for about 10 years. Having to take care of 8 children has not been that easy for her, and so a loan from Kiva will help buy bags of maize to make Fante kenkey to sell.
