Esi is married, has four children and was educated through middle school. Her husband is a driver.

Esi is a small-scale fish monger in Akatakyiwa near Cape Coast. For quite some time now she has bought fish from a nearby fishing village and then smoked it to sell. She uses her earnings to help pay the utility bills and their children’s school fees.

Esi is applying for a 500 GHS loan from CRAN to buy an increased quantity of fish to smoke, thus allowing her to meet customers’ rising demands. She hopes to use her new profits to set up a smoked fish stand so she can sell from a permanent location.
