Ekua is married to a bag maker. She has 6 children. She uses her income to help her husband pay the household expenses as well as save for a rainy day. She is a junior high school graduate.
Ekua currently sells baby diapers and groceries in Adenic Ro (near Cape Coast). With over 3 years of experience in this trade, Ekua sees an opportunity to expand her enterprise further. Nevertheless, she does not have the working capital necessary to increase her quantity of stock. Thus her loan will be used to buy more baby diapers and groceries, indirectly helping her boost her overall sales.
Ekua wants to make her business self-sustainable as soon as possible. As a result, she plans to channel the new profits from her expanded business back into her diaper and grocery enterprise.
