Smile Group's story

Emmanuel is a 56-year-old married man and a member of the Smile group. He has been operating a drinking spot where he sells softdrinks and fruit drinks at his resident for about 8 years now. Emmanuel joined his group in 2009 and since 2010 ID-Ghana has supported him financially. This is his fifth loan cycle and he needs Kiva’s support of 500 Ghana cedis to help him increase his stock. The profits from his business will go toward savings, food, and supporting his grandchildren's education.
