Nana Efua's story

Although she has not received a formal education, Nana Efua is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling ‘Kenkey’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and is wrapped in banana leaves). She usually sells her ‘Kenkey’ in Putubiw (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in preparing and selling ‘Kenkey’ for 20 years. Nana Efua is married and has two children. Her husband works in forestry. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees. Nana Efua wants to use her loan to purchase a greater quantity of maize, thus increasing her current inventory levels. As a result, this will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty ‘Kenkey’. In the long term, Nana Efua plans to reinvest the future profits back into her business, thus helping her expand and meet the needs of rising customer demands.
