A loan of $225 helped to purchase an increased amount of maize, cassava, and over the counter medicines which will aid her in improving her overall ‘Banku’ and medicine sales.


Comfort's story

Due to difficult circumstances Comfort 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, Comfort prepares and sells ‘Banku’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made using fermented corn/cassava dough that is mixed proportionally and cooked in hot water into a smooth whitish paste) in Ekumfi-Twa (near Cape Coast). In addition to that she also sells medicine. She has been doing so for about six years. As a widow with seven children, Comfort uses all her income to provide for her family. Comfort will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of maize, cassava, and over the counter medicines which will aid her in improving her overall ‘Banku’ and medicine sales. Comfort wants to use the future profits from her expanded businesses to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
