Due to difficult circumstances, Ekua did not have access to any form of formal education, yet this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Currently, Ekua sells fried doughnuts in Emissakrom, near Cape Coast. She has been engaged in this business for about five years.
As a divorcée with four children, Ekua uses all her income to feed and provide for her family.
Ekua will use the loan to purchase an increased quantity of flour, sugar, and cooking oil. This investment will aid her in improving her overall sales by being able to prepare more doughnuts to offer for sale.
Ekua intends to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
