Promise Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy and sell wax-prints, lace and kente cloth (African fabric) to customers.

Promise Group's story

Promise is a group consisting of five members and led by Getrude (who is standing second from the left), a 49-year-old woman, married to Clement, a 58-year-old man. They have three children. Every morning Getrude buys wax-prints, lace, and kente cloth (African fabric) directly from the main market at a lower price and sells them at another market. Getrude usually operates the business from 7 am to 4 pm every day. In order to make more income she has planned to buy and sell more wax-prints, lace and kente (African fabric). To make her plan come true, she needs more money. This is her 10th loan cycle with ID-Ghana and the third with Kiva. She has four other colleagues who are dealing in maize porridge, second-hand clothing, cooked rice and beans, and grocery and foodstuffs. They are requesting a loan totaling GHS 9,700 to boost their businesses. They hope Kiva/ID-Ghana will support them so that they can better their businesses.
