A loan of $250 helped to buy ingredients for kenkey.


Ama's story

Ama is a widow and has 7 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Ama is a successful businesswoman. She prepares and sells kenkey for a living, which is a traditional Ghanaian staple dish that is made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves. She normally sells her kenkey in Apewosika, near Cape Coast. She has been actively involved in this business for about 8 years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Ama uses her income to provide for the entire family. She will use the loan to purchase more maize, thus helping to improve her overall sales. With the new profits, Ama plans to diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
