Noyaa 1 Group's story
The Noyaa group lives in the province of Teshie in the Greater Accra region of Ghana. Mary, the featured borrower of the group, makes a living by selling various types of clothes in the market square to support her family. Mary, who comes from a very humble background, is married with 2 school-going children in her locality. There is no reliable access to raise money to improve the living standard of her family; therefore, with the help of her husband, she is seeking a loan in the amount of 1,500 Ghanaian Cedi (GHS) to purchase more clothes to stock her shop and meet her customers' demands. Mary will use her profit to reinvest in her business, pay school fees and repay the loan.
