Adwowa is single and has 4 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Adwowa is a successful businesswoman. She prepares and sells ‘Kenkey’ (a traditional Ghanaian staple dish that is made from corn dough and is wrapped in banana leaves) for a living. She normally sells her ‘Kenkey’ in Asafora (near Cape Coast).
She has been actively involved in this business for about 2 years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Adwowa uses her income to provide for the entire family.
She will use the loan to purchase increased amounts of maize, thus helping her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Adwowa plans to further diversify the types of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
