Even though Kwaku grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped him from fulfilling his dream of achieving a better life for himself and his family. Currently, Kwaku is an entrepreneur. He sells pineapples in Edukuma (near Cape Coast). His business enterprise has grown substantially since he began 10 years ago. He uses the income from his business to help his wife raise their 4 children.

Kwaku has identified that there are growing demands among consumers for his product. However, he is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory. Thus he aims to use his loan to purchase more pineapples to sell. With the new profits from his expanded business, Kwaku wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all his children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
