Enyonam is a food vendor at Wegbe, Hohoe, Ghana. She prepares and sells waakye, a local Ghanaian rice and beans dish. Waakye is a very popular Ghanaian meal. It is often eaten as breakfast, lunch or supper and is normally eaten together with macaroni, wele (cow skin), gari (roasted cassava mash), salad with pepper sauce, tomato sauce, fish, egg or meat. Enyonam had no education because her parents did not want to take her to school because she was a girl. She is married and has only one child. Her husband is a farmer. Enyonam has been selling waakye for three years. She plans to send her child to school, to the university level, so she wants to save the new profits from her business for the education of her child. The proceeds of her loan will be used to buy more bags of rice and beans, and oil by the gallon.
