Due to difficult circumstances, Esi 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, Esi sells fish in Elmina (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about ten years. She is married to a fisherman, and together they have five children. Esi uses all her income to feed and provide for her family.
Esi will use this loan to purchase an increased amount of fish, which will help her improve her overall sales. Esi wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
