A loan helped to purchase more hard-wear equipment to meet the demands of customers.


Praise Jah Group's story

This is a group called "Praise Jah", which will begin another loan cycle with Kiva's partner, ID Ghana, which is located in the province of Chorkor. The group is made up of three members and is led by Akos.

The loan that ID Ghana offers will benefit a range of businesses, including the one that Akos owns. Currently she has a business selling hard-wear equipment at the local market.

The loan will be used to purchase more hard-wear equipment to meet the demands of customers.

Akos is also involved in the employment of youth with regard to supporting them to finance the education. This also helps her to supplement her income. This work allows her to support her family financially too.

She is married and has three children who are schooling.
