A loan of $325 helped to purchase an increased quantity of maize so that she can prepare and sell more of her tasty kenkey.


Esi's story

Due to difficult circumstances, Esi did not have access to any form of formal education, yet this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Even at 60 years of age, Esi still prepares and sells kenkey, which is a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves. She operates her business in Emissa Kro, near Cape Coast, and has been doing so for about two years. As a single woman, Esi uses all her income to support herself.

Esi will use the loan to purchase an increased quantity of maize, which will help her to produce more of her tasty kenkey.

Esi intends to use the expected profits from her expanded business to develop her kenkey enterprise further and be able to save for a rainy day.
