Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy more ladies wear to sell.

Shallon Group's story

This group is made up of 7 members, and all are traders. They have been together as a group for 3 years and they meet every Monday to discuss their businesses. 5 are women and 2 are men and their ages range between 23 years and 49 years. They sell cooking utensils, maize, vegetables, cosmetics and clothing.

Berlinda is 34 years old, single, and sells 2nd hand clothing. She is preparing for marriage, and therefore working hard to be able to make more profit. Her capital is not enough to buy more bails of 2nd hand clothing. This is her 1st loan cycle with ID-Ghana and she needs 300 Ghana cedis to be able to buy more 2nd hand clothing and sell to customers. She will use her profit to reinvest.

Together, they need 1900 Ghana cedis to be able to expand their businesses.

In this group: Victoria, Mary, Charles, Berlinda, Portia, Joseph, Augustina
