Bernice's story

Although she has received no prior formal education, Bernice is an entrepreneur. She prepares and sells fish and ‘Kenkey’ (a traditional Ghanaian dish made from corn dough and wrapped in banana leaves). She can be found selling ‘Kenkey’ in Asafa (near Cape Coast). She has been involved in this enterprise for 10 years. Bernice is married and has 3 children. Her husband works as a mason.

The proceeds from her ‘Kenkey’ business normally goes towards helping her husband cover the family’s general expenses and to pay their children’s school fees. Bernice will use this loan to purchase increased amounts of maize, thus aiding her to improve her overall sales. With the new profits from her expanded business, Bernice plans to further diversify the type of products that she sells, hence adapting to changing customer preferences.
