A loan of $325 helped to buy more clothes to sell to her customers.


Irene's story

Irene is a 32-year-old trader with two children and is married to James, a 40-year-old mason (one who builds houses). She has been with ID Ghana for the past two years and is doing very good with both her business and family. She sells second-hand cloths for the past five years now. She hawks from Mondays through Saturdays, a routine she has gone through with her mother. "Being a trader has been very good to me with ID Ghana making loan available for me." She is displayed some of the products in the photograph.

This is her fifth loan. She needed 600 Ghanian cedis (GHS) to buy more dresses to sell to her customers. She has been able, out of this business and with the help of her husband, to educate their children to the high school level.

This she eludes to her joining ID Ghana (her second family).
