Salamatu's story

Salamatu is married and has six children. She has been through junior high school. She sells wakye at Abura. Wakye is a traditional rice dish in Ghana. To prepare wakye, she gets her beans, rice, and colored leaves from the market. She cooks the beans until they become tender and adds the colored leaves to give them a reddish colour. Then, she adds the rice to the bean mixture. She cooks the rice and beans until they become tender enough to eat.

Wakye is normally eaten with macaroni, wele (cow skin), gari (manioc couscous), salad with pepper sauce, tomato sauce, fish, or meat.

Salamatu's husband is a mason. She assists her husband to take care of the home. Salamatu will use the loan to purchase rice, beans and other items to cook to sell.
