A loan of $175 helped to buy more maize and groundnuts, thereby allowing her to meet rising customer demands.


Ekua's story

Although she has received no formal education, Ekua is an entrepreneur. She sells kenkey and sabo (two traditional Ghanaian dishes made primarily from corn and groundnuts respectively) in Akonoma (near Cape Coast).

Ekua has been selling kenkey for some time now. As a widow having to provide for her two children, she is responsible for supporting the entire family. Her loan will be used to buy more maize and groundnuts, thereby allowing her to meet rising customer demands.

Ekua hopes to use the new profits from her business to diversify her food operations further.
