Efua's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Efua is an entrepreneur. She prepares and sells ‘Kenkey’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough wrapped in banana leaves). She can be found selling ‘Kenkey’ in Enyan Apaa (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in this enterprise for 5 years. Efua is married and has eight children. Her husband works as a farmer. The proceeds from her ‘Kenkey’ business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and paying their children’s school fees. Efua will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of maize, thus aiding her in improving her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Efua plans to further diversify the types of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
