Ekua is a 65 year old mother of four. She operates a very unusual business: selling very expensive specialized woven men's clothes that are worn on important festive occasions. Ekua has built up a large client base over many years. The market for these clothes is very promising especially with the country's golden jubilee in full swing through 2007. She intends to use the proceeds from the KIVA loan to increase her inventory of material and supplies.
