A loan of $650 helped to buy a variety of provisions to sell and also tomatoes, beans and rice to enable her to cook in large quantities for resale.


Regina's story

Regina operates the provision store in the picture above and she also cooks food to sell at a village called Putubiw near Cape Coast. Some of the foods she cook are 'banku' (fermented corn dough), 'wakye' (beans and rice cooked together), and plain rice with tomato sauce, spicy black pepper and others. When given the loan she would use it to acquire an additional variety of provisions to sell, as well as tomatoes, beans and rice to enable her to cook in large quantities for resale. She is presently living with four dependents and as a responsible parent, she assists her spouse to provide the daily needs of her family. Any profit acquired from her increased income will be used to build a restaurant.
