A loan of $625 helped to purchase an increased amount of maize which will help her produce more of her tasty Kenkey.

Yaa's story

Yaa, 52, is married to a farmer, and together they have seven children. The family lives in Emissa Krom near Cape Coast.

Due to difficult circumstances Yaa received no formal education, yet this has not stopped her from becoming a businesswoman. For the past five years she has prepared and sold kenkey, a traditional Ghanaian dish made from fermented corn dough that is wrapped in banana leaves. She uses all of her income to feed and provide for her entire family.

Yaa is applying for a 1200 GHS loan from CRAN to buy additional maize so she can make more of her tasty kenkey. Yaa wants to use future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all of her children are able to receive an education.
