A loan of $1,175 helped a member to buy bags of charcoal to offer for sale.

Yom Group's story

This group is comprised of two members: Agnes and Ajo. They sell charcoal and gari, respectively. They have been taking out loans together since 2007.

Agnes, age 45, sells charcoal to earn an income. She has been with ID Ghana for the past six years and her business is doing very well. She has been engaged in this business for 15 years now and works Mondays through Saturdays, a routine she has learned from her mother. She is grateful for ID Ghana’s training on savings, and feels that she would not have made it this far without it.

This is her eleventh loan. She is requesting GHS 1,500 in order to buy bags of charcoal to offer for sale to her customers.

Together, Agnes and Ajo are requesting a total amount of GHS 2,200, which they will use to buy more goods to sell to their customers in the community.
