A loan of $200 helped to purchase an increased amount of maize, which will aid her in improving her overall "Kenkey" sales.


Abena's story

Due to difficult circumstances, Abena 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, Abena prepares and sells Kenkey (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves) in her village of Apewosika (near Cape Coast). She has been doing so for about six years. She is married to a farmer, and together they have six children.

Abena uses all her income to feed and provide for her family. Abena will use the loan to purchase an increased amount of maize, which will aid her in improving her overall Kenkey sales. She wants to use the future profits from her expanded business to ensure that all her children are able to receive an education.
