Kantata Group's story

The Kantata group meets every Wednesday at Teshie in the Greater Accra region of Ghana.

The group is comprised of three women who, three years ago, decided to come together to join ID-Ghana (MFI). This has served them very well as they have been able to grow their small businesses. They sell plastic products, plantains, kids clothes and provisions.

Mary (standing from left in the photograph) is a 41-year-old married woman with three children. She sells plastic products. She has nine years of experience and works from Monday to Saturday from morning to evening. She is constantly working to improve her business. This is her fifth loan with ID-Ghana and she needs 900 Ghana cedis to buy plastic chairs, plastic bowls, plantains and pampers to sell to customers.

She sells these products to generate money to take care of family expenses and for her housing project. She has been doing this business for six years and the business is going well. She buys from the market and sells in her locality.

The group members need a total of 2,200 Ghana cedis to expand their businesses.
