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. Aged 29, Esi prepares and sells Kenkey (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough that is wrapped in banana leaves) in Emissakrom (near Cape Coast). She has been doing this for about 10 years.

Esi is married to a carpenter and together they have three children. She uses all her income to feed and provide for her family.

Esi will use this loan to purchase an increased amount of maize which will help her produce more of her tasty Kenkey. Esi wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
