He is a young and dynamic individual who is motivated to improve his life so that the future can be brighter for his household.
Ibrahim I. is twenty-nine years old. He is married with a child who is still breastfeeding. He operates a clothing shop in Atebubu, a town in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana, where most people farm crops, such as maize, beans, millet, and yams.
Ibrahim realized that the people in his community travel to the big city of Kumasi to buy clothing, such as jeans and shirts. He seized that as an opportunity to look for customers. Ibrahim treks to the city of Kumasi to purchase clothes from wholesalers at a moderate price, and retails them directly to customers in Atebubu.
Ibrahim wants a loan to buy clothing, like jeans, shoes, and men's shirts. He believes this will help him to expand his business. He aspires to send his child to the university, and believes this can be possible through the loan.
Ibrahim is a member of ‘The Living God’ trust group. They guarantee each another to access the loan and act as social collateral to repay the loan on time. His picture was taken during their group meeting.
