Ekua is divorced and has one child. Even though she did not receive any formal education, Ekua is a successful businesswoman. She sells secondhand clothes in Emissakrom (near Cape Coast), and has been actively involved in this business for about four 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 increased amounts of secondhand clothes, thus aiding her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Ekua plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
