Number 15 Group's story

This group is called ‘Number 15’ and it is made up of eight women. One of them is Christiana, who was born at Teshie and is thirty-nine years old. She is married to a 45-year-old mechanic, and they have three children. Christiana has completed secondary school, after which she decided to go into trading. She wants to work in order to help her husband with the household expenses.

Christiana sells chickens and rice from door to door. She has been doing this for 19 years, and it is going well. Her earnings have grown, so she has been able to buy more chicken and rice to meet her customers' demand.

This is Christiana's 3rd loan cycle, and she needs 300 Ghana cedis (GHC) to buy more rice and chicken meats. The other members of the group include Josephine, who would like to buy milo, milk and sugar, Emelia who sells fish and Rebecca who sells cooking utensils. The group also includes Mary, who sells charcoal, Diana selling yams, Rebecca selling fish and Paulina selling plates. They need a total amount of GHC 3,250 to buy enough commodities for their customers.

In this group: Mary, Paulina, Rebeccah, Josephine, Rebecca, Emilia, Christiana, Diana
