Joyce's story

Although she has received no formal education, Joyce is an entrepreneur. She specializes in preparing and selling “kenkey” (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves). She usually sells her kenkey in Hohoe. She has been involved in preparing and selling kenkey for 10 years. Joyce is married and has five children. Her husband works as an electrician. The proceeds from her business normally go towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and pay their children’s school fees. Joyce wants to use her loan to buy more maize (corn), thus increasing her current inventory levels. This will allow her to sell greater quantities of her tasty kenkey. In the long term, Joyce plans to reinvest the future profits back into her business, thus helping her expand and meet rising customer demand.
