Even though Adjoa grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Currently, Adjoa is an entrepreneur. She sells garden eggs and palm oil in Enyan Apaa (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 20 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their five children.
Adjoa has identified that there is 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 garden eggs and palm fruits to make oil to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Adjoa wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
