A loan of $450 helped a member to buy more charcoal.


Hellen Group's story

This is Hellen's group which is made up of three ladies who sell charcoal, groundnuts, and foodstuffs. Their ages range from 25 to 45. Hellen is a 45-year-old charcoal seller who is married to a 52-year-old driver. They have two children, all boys. She has been doing this job for 12 years and is in her third loan cycle with ID-Ghana. She has repaid all loans without trouble. Now she is requesting 300 GHS to buy four sacks of charcoal in order to supply her customers. She buys from the market at wholesale prices and sells to customers at retail prices. Her ambition is to also become a wholesale charcoal supplier in the Teshie-Nungua area. Hellen, Gifty, and Georgina need a total amount of 850 GHS to be able to expand their businesses.
