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