Even though Efia grew up in poverty without an education, it has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. She is an entrepreneur selling cooking ingredients in Ohiaba (near Cape Coast). Her business has grown substantially since she began 18 years ago, and Elfia uses her income to help her husband raise their six children.

Efia has identified growing demand for her product but cannot meet it due to limited inventory capacity. She will therefore use this loan to purchase more cooking ingredients to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Efia wants to ensure that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
