Ekua is a widow with five children who lives in the village of Nyame Bekyer near Cape Coast. She is the sole breadwinner in the entire family and so must provide for all of them. For the past nine years she has cooked and sold kenkey, a traditional Ghanaian dish made of fermented corn or cassava dough that is partially cooked, then steamed and served rolled in banana leaves.

Ekua is applying for a 800 GHS loan from CRAN to buy increased amounts of corn and cassava and so increase her kenkey production. With new profits from her expanded business, Ekua plans to further diversify the types of food that she sells so as to attract more customers.
