A loan of $225 helped to buy an increased quantity of corn to prepare her 'kenkey' recipe.


Georgena's story

Georgena sells the local favorite dish, 'kenkey', in Eguafo near Elmina. 'Kenkey' is a mashed corn dough usually wrapped in banana leaves and eaten with pepper sauce or meat. Georgena has received no formal education. She is married and has five children. Her husband is a farmer.

Georgena has been selling her 'kenkey' for some time now. She is responsible for helping her husband pay the family's general expenses. Her loan will be used to buy an increased quantity of corn to prepare her kenkey and sell it in the market. She hopes to use the new profits from her business to grow her 'kenkey'-selling trade.
