Due to difficult circumstances, Ekua did not have access to any form of formal education, yet this has not stopped her from achieving her dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Currently, Ekua sells salted fish in Apewosika (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about 10 years. As a widow with six children, Ekua uses all her income to feed and provide for her family.
Ekua will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of salt and fish, which will aid her in improving her overall sales. Ekua wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
