A loan of $225 helped to purchase more corn to prepare kenkey (a corn dough, often wrapped in a corn husk) to sell.


Aba's story

Aba sells kenkey (a corn dough, often wrapped in a corn husk) in Batanya near Cape Coast. In the picture above Aba is showing part of the kenkey preparation process; the corn is first washed and soaked, then milled into dough and molded into balls. It is then wrapped in the corn husk and cooked.

Aba has been preparing kenkey in this way for the past 10 years. Aba has 6 children and uses her income to take care of the children and pay for the family's accommodation and utility bills. Aba will use the loan to purchase more corn to prepare kenkey to sell. With the new profits from her business, Aba will expand her kenkey selling business.
