A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy 3 cartons of fish and 1 box of sandals to supply to customers.


Women Life Group's story

This group is made up of 4 women who are working in the sale of sandals, fish, provisions, soft drinks and metal coal pots. They all live in Teshie and meet up every Thursday to discuss business and payments towards the loan.

Mary is 60 years old, single, and sells fish and sandals. All her children are now independent and are working to take care of themselves. She has been doing this job for 26 years at her residence. She starts work at 6:00am and closes at 6:00pm. She needs 800 Ghana cedis to increase stock by buying 3 cartons of fish and 1 box of sandals. This is her 3rd loan cycle; in the 2nd loan she was given 500 Ghana cedis which was used for the same purpose. She has been using her profit for a housing project: that is why she is requesting 800, so that she can buy enough to sustain her business.

They need a total amount of 2350 Ghana cedis to be able to buy enough goods.
