Mary sells kenkey (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough that is wrapped in banana leaves) in Akatakyiwa (near Cape Coast). She has not had any form of formal education. She is married and has five children. Her husband is a farmer. Mary has been working in this enterprise for almost a year. She is responsible for supporting her husband in paying the family's utility bills and their children's school fees. Her loan will be used to purchase a greater quantity of maize. She hopes to use the new profits from her business to grow her kenkey enterprise and increase her capital base. In the long run she wants to expand her business into neighboring villages.
