A loan of $425 helped to purchase increased amounts of maize and cassava.

Elizabeth Adjoa's story

Elizabeth is divorced and has two children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Elizabeth is a successful businesswoman. She prepares and sells "banku" for a living (a traditional Ghanaian dish made using fermented corn/cassava dough that is mixed proportionally and cooked in hot water into a smooth whitish consistent paste). She normally sells her "banku" in Wiomoah (near Cape Coast). She has been actively involved in this business for about four years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Elizabeth uses her income to provide for the entire family.

Elizabeth will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of maize and cassava, thus aiding her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Elizabeth plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
