Beautiful Flowers Group's story

This group of friends and neighbors live in the district of 'kpeshie' in the greater Accra region of Ghana. This group is made up of 14 people who are searching continuously for opportunities to make a headway in business, and to bring a better future to their children through their daily efforts. The primary business activities of the members are, for example: food sales, sales of crafts, a grocery store, fuel sales, drinks, fish, meat, fruit, sandals, materials, and much more.

Mabel is a member of the group and her primary economic success has been in the sales of sandals and fruits like pineapple, pawpaw (papaya), grapes, and bananas. She runs a shop where she sells sandals and fruits, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., at her residence. She buys items from the market and supplies part to her punctual customers and sells part to the nearby customers. It has been 10 years since she began this business, and it is going very well for her, thanks to the effort she puts into her work and the support she received from ID-Ghana through Kiva. At this time, Mabel is in need of a loan of 1,000 Ghana cedis (GHS) to buy enough fruits and sandals to supply to customers. With Christmas approaching, customers are demanding for childrens' sandals for the celebration.

The members as a whole are thankful for the opportunity that has been offered and promise to make payments of each of their different loans on schedule as arranged. The group needs a total amount of 9,800 GHS to improve their businesses.

In this group: Sampson, Cynthia, Gladys, Mabel, Grace, Rebecca, Asheley, Mary, Victoria, Joseph, Mary, Grace, Victoria, Millicent
