Even though Mena grew up in poverty without an education, this has not stopped her from fulfilling her dream of achieving a better life for herself and her family. Currently, Mena is an entrepreneur. She sells clothing in Aburansa (near Cape Coast). Her business enterprise has grown substantially since she began 3 years ago. She uses the income from her business to help her husband raise their 6 children.

Mena has identified that there are growing demands among consumers for her product. Nevertheless, she is unable to meet their needs due to limited inventory. Thus she aims to use her loan to purchase more clothing to sell. With the new profits from her expanded business, Mena wants to buck the trend by ensuring that all her children will be given the opportunity to further distance their family from poverty.
