Florence is 32 years old, a married woman who has two children. Florence lives in a rental house that has electricity, but not piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is purchasing food for her family.
For the past six years, Florence has operated an African wax-prints, batik and detergent business, selling from her home to her neighbors and passersby. This is her sixth loan request from ID-Ghana and she has repaid previous loans without problem.
With the GHS 1200 loan amount, she wants to purchase African wax-prints, batiks and detergent to sell to customers. She decided to join ID-Ghana to access loans to boost her business.
