A loan of $775 helped to purchase more rice to sell.


Esi's story

Even though Esi grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Currently, Esi is an entrepreneur. She sells cooked rice in Besease (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 12 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their 5 children.
Esi has identified growing demand among consumers for her product. However, she is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory capacity. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more rice to sell. With the profits from her expanded business, Esi wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children are given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
