Even though Yaa 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, Yaa is an entrepreneur. She sells kenkey, rice and vegetables in Wisdom Mpeasem (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 15 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their five children.

Yaa sees that there are growing demands among consumers for her products, but she is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory capacity. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more kenkey, rice and vegetables to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Yaa wants to ensure that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
