A loan of $275 helped to purchase rice and beans, helping her to improve her overall sales.

Efua's story

Efua is an entrepreneur, although she has received no prior formal education. She is married and has four children. Her husband works as a blacksmith.

Efua prepares and sells ‘Wakye’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made primarily from beans, rice and colored leaves) and can be found selling it in Onyaadze (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in this enterprise for 12 years. The proceeds from her ‘Wakye’ business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees.

Efua will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of rice and beans, thus aiding her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, she plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
