This is Grace from Teshie. She is 54 years old and married to Harry, 58, a tax collector. They have two children.
Grace is a fish seller. She has been in this business for the past 23 years and is doing very well. She joined ID Ghana in 2011, after being introduced to it by another client. She has since taken three loans from ID Ghana.
Grace is applying for her fourth loan now, and she needs GHS 1,000. She will use this amount to buy more fish to sell to her customers in the community.
