A loan of $625 helped a member to buy material to sew school uniforms for a junior high school.

Loud Group's story

Loud group is made up of two men, aged 34 and 41 years who are involved in tailoring and the sale of maize (corn). They have lived in the same neighborhood for seven years and in 2010 both decided to come together so that they can access loan from Initiative Development Ghana, Kiva's partner in Ghana.

Robert is a 34-year-old tailor with two children but single. He could not marry the children's mother due to family problems. He needs 800 Ghana Cedis to sew school uniforms. He has a sewing contract from one junior high school in his locality to sew students' uniforms.

He took 800 Ghana Cedis in his 4th loan cycle which was used for the same purpose. He uses his profit to take care of his children and reinvests the rest into the business.

Robert and Jacob need a total amount of 1,150 Ghana Cedis to improve their businesses.

In this group: Robert, Jacob
