Evelyn's story

Evelyn is a married woman with 4 children. She has received schooling from primary school to junior high school, but couldn’t continue because her parents didn’t see a reason to further their daughter’s education. Her husband is a farmer.

Evelyn cooks and sells Waakye, a local Ghanaian dish. Waakye is a very popular Ghanaian food. It can be eaten as breakfast, lunch or supper, and is served with macaroni, wele (cow skin), gari, salad with pepper sauce, tomato sauce, fish or meat.

To prepare her Waakye, Evelyn gets 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 color. Then she adds the rice to the bean mixture. She cooks the rice and beans until they become tender enough to eat.

She uses her income to assist her spouse in paying her children's school fees. Evelyn intended to use the loan to purchase cassava and sell it in her locality to enable her to make profits and increase her working capital for the expansion of her Waakye business.
