Efua's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Efua is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling kenkey (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves). She usually sells her kenkey in Ay/New Town (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in preparing and selling kenkey for six years.

Efua is married and has five children. Her husband works as a miller. The proceeds from her business normally go toward helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.

Efua wants to use her loan to purchase a greater quantity of maize, thus increasing her current inventory levels. As a result, this will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty kenkey. In the long term, Efua plans to reinvest the future profits back into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the rising customer demand.
