Comfort
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 consistent paste) in her village of Enyan Apaa (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about four years.

Comfort is married to a teacher, and together they have five children. She uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. Comfort will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of maize and cassava, which will aid her in improving her overall ‘Banku’ sales. Comfort wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
