Mercy's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Mercy is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling Millet porridge. She usually sells her porridge in Ekumfe-Twi (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in preparing and selling porridge for two years.

Mercy is married and has one child. Her husband works as a driver. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.
