Efua's story

Even though Efua grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for herself and her family. Currently, Efua is an entrepreneur. She sells fried fish in Emissakrom (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began six years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their five children.

Efua has identified that there is a growing demand among consumers’ for her product. Nevertheless, she is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory capacity. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more fish to fry and subsequently sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Efua wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
