Lucy
Lucy prepares kenkey, a local Ghanaian dish, for sale in Soba, Hohoe. Kenkey is a traditional Ghanaian meal that is made with corn flour. It requires fermentation in order to create its unique flavor and is usually served with a soup, stew, or sauce. It is produced by cooking fermented dough of corn/maize wrapped in maize husks and steamed. Kenkey can be eaten with various kinds of sauces, such as pepper sauce. It is often served with meat or fish, such as fried or roasted fish, roasted chicken or roasted turkey.

Lucy has never been to school due to financial difficulties in her family growing up. She is married and has 5 children with her husband, who is a farmer. Lucy has been selling kenkey for the past 8 years now. She is responsible for the basic needs of the home. Her loan will be used to buy a bag of maize so she can cook and sell her kenkey recipe in large quantities. She hopes to use the new profits for her children’s upkeep and education.
