Due to difficult circumstances, Efua did not have access to any form of formal education. However, this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur. She has been selling charcoal in Asebu Ekrokul (near Cape Coast, Ghana) for about three years. She is married to a photographer and together they have four children.

Efua uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. She will use the loan to purchase more charcoal, which will aid her in improving her overall sales. She wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
