Progress Group's story

Progress Group is comprised of seven members, all from Teshie. They are Ashorkor, Joyce, Mercy, Mary, Ayorkor, Grace and Eunice, who sell maize (corn), fish, sewing accessories, prepared kenkey (cooked corn paste) and fish meals, cassava, and fruits. They have been together for five months.

Ayorkor is a 45-year-old fish seller, married to Daniel, a 52-year-old carpenter. They have two children, who are adults now and do not depend on their parents. Ayorkor needs GHS 800 to buy more fish to sell to her customers, which will support her husband. This is her fourth loan cycle with ID-Ghana.

She has been in this business for the past six years and was given a loan amount of GHS 300 at her first loan cycle.

The entire group is borrowing an amount totaling GHS 4,650 to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.
