Ama Agens 2's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Ama Agnes 2 is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling ‘Wakye’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made primarily from beans, rice and colored leaves). She usually sells her ‘Wakye’ in Dompoase (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in preparing and selling ‘Wakye’ for 8 years. Ama is married and has 8 children. Her husband works as a farmer. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees. Ama wants to use her loan to purchase a greater quantity of rice and beans, thus increasing her current inventory levels. As a result, this will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty ‘Wakye’. In the long term, Ama plans to reinvest the future profits back into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
