A loan of $225 helped to purchase more corn, thus allowing her to prepare more kenkey.


Esi's story

Married to a social welfare worker and the mother of six children, Esi has been selling kenkey (a traditional corn-based dish that is wrapped in banana leaves) in Akonoma, near Cape Coast, for 10 years. Esi, who received no formal education, is responsible for helping her husband pay their general bills and their children's school fees.

Esi's loan will be used to purchase more corn, thus allowing her to prepare more kenkey. She hopes to use the new profits arising from her business to expand her enterprise.
