Comfort
Comfort is a widow and has eight children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Comfort is a successful businesswoman. To earn a living, she prepares and sells ‘Kenkey’ (a traditional Ghanaian staple dish that is made from corn dough and is wrapped in banana leaves). She normally sells her Kenkey in Enyan Kokodo (near Cape Coast). She has been actively involved in this business for about five years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Comfort uses her income to provide for the entire family.

Comfort will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of maize, which will help her to improve her overall sales of Kenkey. With the new profits from her expanded business, Comfort plans to diversify the types of products that she sells, thus adapting to changing customer preferences.
