Ekua
Due to difficult circumstances, Ekua 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, Ekua prepares and sells ‘Wakye’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made primarily from beans, rice and colored leaves) in her village of Enyan Apaa (near Cape Coast). She has been doing this for about six years. She is married to a farmer, and together they have three children.

Ekua uses all of her income to feed and provide for her family. Ekua will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of rice and beans, which will aid her in improving her overall ‘Wakye’ sales. Ekua wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all of her children are able to receive an education.
