Diana's Group's story
This group is beginning its sixth loan cycle with ID-Ghana. The group is comprised of 11 members, and its leader is Diana. The members' businesses are varied and include: clothing, underwear, shoes, provisions, jeans and bags. The loan they are requesting will benefit small business owners such as Diana. She has been a member of this group for three years and joined by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. She has been selling provisions for nine years. She learned the trade nine years ago when she helped her mother. After getting married, she opened her own shop. The loan will increase her work capital so she can buy more provisions in the city of Accra. She will sell her products on order. This work allows her to earn enough income to support her household. She is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about ID-Ghana, she says it is the soft loan, savings, and training in credit and health. They will need a total amount of GHS 9800 to expand businesses.
