Ekua is divorced and has 8 children. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Ekua is a successful businesswoman. She prepares and sells kenkey, a traditional Ghanaian staple dish that is made from corn dough and is wrapped in banana leaves, for a living. She normally sells her kenkey in Emissakrom (near Cape Coast). She has been actively involved in this business for about 2 years. As the sole breadwinner in the family, Ekua uses her income to provide for the entire family. Ekua will use the loan to purchase more maize, which will allow her to improve her overall sales.
