A loan of $250 helped to purchase cassava and plantains to sell.


Ekua's story

Even though Ekua grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for her and her family. Currently, Ekua is an entrepreneur who sells cassava and plantains in Twifo Praso, near Cape Coast. Her business has grown substantially since she began four years ago. Ekua uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their three children. She has identified growing customer demand but is unable to meet it due to her limited inventory capacity.

Ekua is requesting a loan to purchase more cassava and plantains to sell. With the profits from her expanded business, Ekua wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance themselves from poverty.
