Although she has received no formal education, Esi is an entrepreneur. She sells Kenkey (a traditional corn based dish that is wrapped in banana leaves) in Akonoma (near Cape Coast). She has been selling kenkey for two years. As a widow having to provide for four children, Esi uses her income to support the entire family.
Esi will use the loan to purchase more maize thereby allowing her to meet rising customer demands. With the new profits from her expanded business, Esi plans to enhance her business operations by venturing into newer markets.
