A loan of $1,900 helped a member to purchase groceries in bulk.

Dependable God Group's story

Petty trading like the sale of groceries is widespread in Ghana because it is easy to start the business up. It usually begins with table-top selling and then grows to become a kiosk and eventually becomes a supermarket. Angelina K. is an entrepreneur who has been trading in groceries like biscuits, bottled water, candies, canned foods, rice, cooking oil, toiletries, etc. for the past 8 years. She is now 48 years old.

Angelina hopes that, one day, she will be able to grow her business into a big shop. She is excited to be taking the loan which she plans to invest in purchasing groceries in bulk to serve her customers. She anticipates increasing her profit level and also expanding her market. She also farms to generate additional income.

Angelina is married to a farmer and they have five children from age 9-18 years. She describes herself as a cooperative group leader of 'Dependable God' Borrower Group, made up of 10 members. She says her group members are cordial and as the leader she ensures regular meeting attendance and repayment of loan installments.
